American Heart Association Resources

AASA and the American Heart Association have partnered to highlight the efforts of superintendents to improve student and staff health and wellness, including interactive and actionable resources.

Superintendents have the opportunity to contribute to the health and wellbeing of students and staff. Our school systems must be designed to serve as models for safe and healthy living which begins at the top. An AHA partnership serves to tie together our schools with our community.

School superintendents have tremendous leadership responsibilities for delivering a vision that leads to the success of their students and staff. They are influential within their communities and have a public platform to be heard across a broad spectrum of stakeholders.

The central goal of this guide is to help superintendents position health and well-being as a key component for school operations. This is intended to be a starting point to level set. The goal is to get all superintendents thinking about the transformational impact that occurs when leaders apply their skills to improving health outcomes in schools. This guide hopes to capture the passion and moral imperatives that come with this monumental task.
