The Colorado Alliance for School Health transforms how health care and education partners collaborate to create sustainable systems that result in health equity among all Colorado students.
The Alliance was formed in 2016 with support from The Colorado Health Foundation. It will develop an innovative approach to identifying and responding to health needs of districts and schools.
In late 2017, the Alliance issued a Call for Interest to Colorado K-12 public schools or districts interested in increasing student health and school performance through decreasing absenteeism.
We will assert our leadership on these issues and dedicate resources to engage in legislative and regulatory settings as well as influencing the development and creation of programs and pilots.
Alliance partners regularly collect and use data to inform planning, document progress, and ultimately improve the health, development, learning, and success of children and their school communities.
