Team California for Healthy Kids // California Department of Education | Santa Clara County Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SSPI) Tom Torlakson has initiated the Team California for Healthy Kids (TCHK) to promote healthy eating and physical activity throughout the day, every day, in schools, before and after school agencies, early childhood programs, and communities. The campaign will focus on making healthy choices the easy choices.


Rigorous research confirms the clear connection between health, learning, and attendance:


Healthy children are:
* more successful in school
* miss fewer days of school
* are more attentive and well-behaved, and
* are more likely to graduate from high school and go to college.

Health disparities contribute to the achievement gap


Superintendent Torlakson has long been a champion for students’ health.  He knows that healthy students not only excel academically, but also are more likely to be positively engaged in social, community and extra-curricular activities. The benefits of supporting student health are far reaching.

 

The goals for the first two years of the campaign are to:
* Increase physical activity, especially moderate-to-vigorous physical activity throughout the day, every day, in schools and communities.
* Increase access to water and fresh foods, particularly salad bars."

"...Research shows that a child’s brain develops most dramatically during the first five years of life. During this critical period, a window of opportunity exists to help shape how a child’s brain matures and to lay the foundation for all of the years that follow. While the early period in children’s development is absolutely critical to their future success, it is also where public investments are lowest.
 

FIRST 5 provides all children ages 0-5 with programs and services that ensure children are born and remain healthy, receive more from their education, and become productive adults."...

"A major challenge in California education is how to improve education outcomes for “high needs” children. The Local Control Funding Formula is targeting significant funds at low-income students, English learners and foster children for the first time. The goal of the Common Core is to prepare all students to be ready for college and careers, including currently lower performing ones. But will these reforms result in the outcomes they are intended to have? The symposium will identify successful strategies in serving high needs students — and what more needs to be done.

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health

Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope Program (REACH) // Momentum for Mental Health | Santa Clara County Events and Resources to Support Youth Development | Scoop.it

"Seeking to prevent the early onset of mental illness in the youth population of Santa Clara County through early education and awareness, consistent treatment and community involvement, the Raising Early Awareness and Creating Hope (REACH) Program launched its services in an effort to help address this growing mental health issue.

 

The program, based on the early detection models from the Portland Identification and Early Referral (PIER) Training Institute in Portland, Maine, is a collaboration of efforts between Momentum for Mental Health and Starlight Community Services.  The core mission of REACH is to help detect early warning signs of psychosis that may pose a threat to young adults, and to provide effective support and treatment.  Though often subtle, early symptoms of psychosis can be disabling and affect young people’s ability to complete schoolwork, interact socially, and accomplish daily tasks."...
