ABSTRACT
Abstract: Many Ohio agencies encouraged school districts to adopt coordinated school health programs. Baseline data to assess the success of these efforts was collected. Two hundred and twenty-five surveys were mailed to randomly selected Ohio public school districts. Results demonstrated that many districts had been exposed to the coordinated school health concept. Many had some components in place, but few had well established/coordinated programs in all eight areas. Data collected will assist in measuring the success of efforts in Ohio to promote coordinated school health by providing a benchmark against which future programs and statewide efforts can be evaluated.
