National Health Education Standards

Standard 7: Students will demonstrate the ability to practice health-enhancing behaviors and avoid or reduce health risks.

Standard 8: Students will demonstrate the ability to advocate for personal, family, and community health
Standard 4: Students will demonstrate the ability to use interpersonal communication skills to enhance health and avoid or reduce health risks.

Standard 5: Students will demonstrate the ability to use decision-making skills to enhance health.
Standard 6: Students will demonstrate the ability to use goal-setting skills to enhance health.

The National Health Education Standards (NHES) were developed to establish, promote and support health-enhancing behaviors for students in all grade levels—from pre-Kindergarten through grade 12.

The NHES provide a framework for teachers, administrators, and policy makers in designing or selecting curricula, allocating instructional resources, and assessing student achievement and progress. Importantly, the standards provide students, families and communities with concrete expectations for health education.

How do policies, such as No Child Left Behind and the Elementary and Secondary Education Act impact child and adolescent health?
Standard 1: Students will comprehend concepts related to health promotion and disease prevention to enhance health.

The Fragmented Approach to School and Community Programs
"Health and success in school are interrelated. Schools cannot achieve their primary mission of education if students and staff are not healthy and fit physically, mentally, and socially.”

Fit, Healthy, and Ready to Learn: Part 1 – Physical Activity, Healthy Eating, and Tobacco Use Prevention, 2000
The Link Between Health And Learning
Identify key policymakers and ways in which they influence education practice in the US.
The effectiveness of school health education is enhanced when it is implemented as part of a larger school health program and when health education outcomes are reinforced by the other components.

The NHES can be used to support the effective implementation of health education as one of the eight components of a CSHP.

They are carefully designed to support schools, educators, families, and other stakeholders in helping students meet the primary goal of health education: for students to adopt and maintain healthy behaviors.
