School Capacity Building

It's Time Texas improves how schools implement and promote healthy practices that lead to broader impact in communities. Utilizing the CDC’s Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSSC) framework, It’s Time Texas convenes health partners and connects them with school professionals, families, parent-led groups and students to make health more achievable for all Texans within our educational system. Bridging the gap between a school’s health goals and available resources, It’s Time Texas empowers schools to implement policies, systems, and environmental changes to improve health outcomes.
