Data to Action: Addressing Youth Risk Behavior through Health Education

Monday, August 24, 2020

Addressing the needs of the whole student is essential for effective learning and remains an important function of local education agencies (LEAs) and schools, now more than ever. This guide elevates trends in students’ self-reported risk behaviors and assessment-based academic performance to DC Health Education Standards and provides educators with planning and implementation resources to support the integration of critical health and safety concepts into in-person and remote learning plans. This guide is one of many resources to support LEAs and schools with implementing the Guiding Principles for Continuous Education and encourages the alignment and integration of instructional practices that support the Whole School, Whole Community, and Whole Child (WSCC) model.
