Physical and Mental Health

Canutillo Independent School District is committed to advancing student academic performance by promoting, practicing and coordinating school health education and services for the benefit and well-being of students. The Coordinated School Health (CSH)Committee will aid students in establishing healthy behaviors designed to last their lifetime.

Coordinated School Health Cycle
An Introduction to Coordinated School Health
  • Establishing healthy behaviors during childhood is more effective than trying to change unhealthy behaviors during adulthood.
  • The health of our children does not depend on major medical breakthroughs, but rather on the everyday practice of good health habits.
  • CSH addresses the needs of the whole child by aiming to provide a healthy environment along with a wide range of other activities to provide for the academic success and the development of healthy behaviors that last a lifetime.
