We are pleased to announce that on September 3, 2014 the CDC completed an update to its School Health Index (SHI) on-line, interactive assessment tool.
The SHI 2014 features ―

  • Updated nutrition content to align with new USDA regulations, including Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards, and
  • Revised physical education and physical activity content to align with updated national standards and advancements in physical activity programming.
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation’s Healthy Schools Program has also adopted CDC’s School Health Index as its assessment tool to help schools assess their current policies and practices as well as track progress over time.
