CDC Healthy Schools supported state education agencies by providing them with funding, technical assistance, specialized tools, recommendations, and resources to promote school health. Our former cooperative agreement recipients implemented and evaluated evidence-based strategies and programs to improve student health and academic achievement by improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and managing chronic health conditions.

Our Stories of Achievement showcase the innovative ways cooperative agreement recipients demonstrated flexibility, ingenuity, and resilience in meeting the needs of students, teachers, and staff.

Video testimonials from select state programs can be accessed here.
