Annotation: This planning kit was prepared by the American School Health Association (ASHA) to assist its members, interested individuals, and groups in becoming advocates for school health programs locally. The theme of the advocacy program is A Healthy Child: The Key to the Basics. ASHA's advocacy program has two objectives: 1) to increase the awareness of the need for and benefits of a comprehensive school health program, and 2) to increase the numbers of school systems that provide quality comprehensive health programs for all students in grades K-12. The planning kit includes an overview of ASHA's advocacy program, program planning guidelines, community program ideas, selected school health support, publicity information, evaluation forms, ASHA publication pamphlet, American Medical Association's Why Health Education in Your School? pamphlet and the Physician's Guide to the School Health Curriculum Process-guidelines for initiating or improving the health instruction component in schools.
