Hillsborough Healthy Schools

Going for the Gold, One School at a Time!

HCPS Healthy Schools Award banner


The Hillsborough Healthy School Award is a district achievement that celebrates hard work in creating a healthier school!

Hillsborough County Public Schools was recently recognized for achieving "Gold Status" as one of Florida's Healthy School Districts for 2017-2018. Only eight school districts in Florida achieved this level. 

To continue to celebrate our schools accomplishments we invited our schools to participate in the Hillsborough’s Healthiest Schools initiative. This school-based initiative celebrates our school's hard work and the efforts they already do, day by day, to create healthier schools for students, families, and employees.

Schools that receive this award meet best practice/standards in the Healthy Schools Program Framework of Best Practice Criteria.

 

“Our vision at the St. Joseph’s Children’s Wellness and Safety Center is to develop partnerships and engage families in order to make life better for those who call the Tampa Bay area home. We are supporting the Hillsborough Healthy Schools award because we have a passion to educate our community on the importance of proper nutrition and being physically active.”
