Healthy and Wise Program

Coordinated School Health Legislation:

  • In 2001, 77th Texas legislature directed the Texas Education Agency to make available a coordinated school health curriculum to be implemented in grades K-5 and required every school system to be trained in its implementation by 2007.
  • In 2003, the 78th legislature directed the Texas Education Agency to make available more than one coordinated school health curriculum and directed the Commissioner of Education to adopt criteria for evaluating those programs submitted for approval.
  • In 2005 the 79th legislature directed the Texas Education Agency to expand the availability of coordinated school health curriculum to middle and junior high school students; and, directed each school district to participate in appropriate training and implement their program of choice in each middle and junior high school.

After careful review of several coordinated school health programs, the Boerne ISD SHAC chose the Healthy and Wise program for use in both elementary and middle schools.
