Whole School, Whole Community,
Whole Child Model
"You can't educate a child who isn't healthy, and you can't keep a child healthy who isn't educated."
Jocelyn Elders, M.D. 15th U.S. Surgeon General
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model expands on the eight elements of the Center for Disease Control's (CDC) coordinated school health approach and is combined with the whole child framework. CDC and ASCD developed this expanded model—in collaboration with key leaders from the fields of health, public health, education, and school health—to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our nation’s schools.
