The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model is an expansion and update of the eight components of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) coordinated school health approach and is combined with the whole child framework. CDC and ASCD developed this expanded model—in collaboration with key leaders from the fields of health, public health, education, and school health—to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach designed to improve learning and health in our nation’s schools.
The WSCC model focuses its attention on the child, emphasizes the role of the community in supporting the school, and acknowledges the connection between health and academic achievement and the importance of evidence-based school policies and practices learning health, and the school as being a part and reflection of the local community.
