The deadline is fast approaching to submit an application for the MCPS Healthy Schools Award. The application deadline has been extended and is now Wednesday, Dec. 7. More information on the process and application is available here.
The MCPS Healthy Schools Award is given to schools that are leaders in addressing the essential health needs of students, staff and families. The application process also offers an opportunity for schools to connect and learn about best practices related to school health, to build relationships with colleagues and to identify areas for improvement.
The application process asks school staff to create an account and join their school team in the Alliance for a Healthier Generation action center, answer a list of assessment questions and submit supporting materials. Schools that meet the “Fully in Place” criteria in multiple topic areas will be entered to win $150, $350 and $500 prizes.
