The Coordinated School Health Program is administered through a joint effort of the South Dakota Department of Health and the South Dakota Department of Education.
The program provides technical guidance and services to schools to help enhance the health of children and adolescents. Its purpose is to expand and strengthen the capacity of state agencies and school districts to plan, carry out and evaluate coordinated school health programs, to address significant health problems that affect adolescents, especially HIV infection, tobacco use, sedentary lifestyle, and dietary habits that result in disease.
