School Health Index

Working with the Department of Health and Office of State Superintendent of Education, ZuriWorks help train 10 teachers, school administrators, and school volunteers from 9 District public and charter schools in the School Health Index Assessment procedures, an interactive, customized online tool developed by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) to enable schools to identify strengths and weaknesses of health and safety programs, create health action plans, and engage the school community in promoting healthy eating and physical activity. As a result of training, teams developed nutritional plans, safety procedures, physical activity protocols, and more to improve the health of over 12,000 DC students.
