Healthy and Safe School Environment of the Coordinated School Health Model
Coordinated School Health Model, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
The physical and aesthetic surroundings and the psychosocial climate and culture of the school are critical factors that influence the health of students. Factors that influence the physical environment include the school building and the area surrounding it, any biological or chemical agents that are detrimental to health, and physical conditions such as temperature, noise, and lighting. The psychological environment includes the physical, emotional, and social conditions that affect the well-being of students and staff.
In an effort to assist educators, parents, students and administrators for effectively responding to acts of bullying and cyberbullying, the agency has developed a new website with a focus on preparedness and response. This website provides definitions, statutory references and requirements, guidance documents, presentations and other resources and materials related to bullying and cyberbullying.
