Step 1: Coordinate and review
Create or convene a wellness, coordinated school health or WSCC team. This team should have a variety of representatives aligned with the diversity within your school and the community. District and/or school wellness policies or other relevant policies should be reviewed by this team.
Step 2: Complete the Action For Healthy Kids School Health Index (AFHK SHI)
As a team, complete the AFHK SHI.
This set of instructions will help your team register, complete a profile, affiliate with your school, invite collaborators, start the AFHK SHI and navigate your report.
This FAQ page will help answer questions that you or your wellness team may have.
Step 3: Complete the DPI Supplemental WSCC questions
As a team, complete the DPI Supplemental WSCC questions.
Once the questions are completed, a report with a score will be sent. Add the results of the WSCC supplemental questions to the corresponding SHI module for a more accurate score.
Step 4: Examine your results
As a team, examine your assessment results and recommendations and review other school data. Examine school strengths and opportunities to improve. Your team will then determine where to focus improvement and establish next steps.
