Schools are powerful places to shape the health, education and
well-being of our children. That is why the Alliance’s Healthy
Schools Program supports more than 13,000 schools across the U.S.
in their efforts to create environments where physical activity
and healthy eating are accessible and encouraged.
The Alliance provides expert advice and resources for school
professionals, teachers and students in addition to information
specifically for parents. Parents serve as key role models in the
home and they can also help ensure that health is a priority at
their child’s school.
The California Endowment’s mission is to expand access to
affordable, quality health care for underserved individuals and
communities, and to promote fundamental improvements in the
health status of all Californians.
The California Endowment – Building Healthy Communities Division
is working with SCUSD to create systemic change in Physical
Education within the Sacramento City Unified Schools.
The California Association for Health, Physical Education,
Recreation and Dance (CAHPERD), founded in 1930, is a non-profit,
voluntary membership corporation formed exclusively to promote
the organizing and progress of school, community and statewide
programs of health, physical education, recreation and dance
which will embody such opportunities and which will insure the
inclusion of such programs within the most appropriate
philosophical and social context of life in California.
