The American School Health Association envisions healthy students who learn and achieve in safe and healthy environments nurtured by caring adults functioning within coordinated school and community support systems. The mission of the American School Health Association is to build the capacity of its members to plan, develop, coordinate, implement, evaluate, and advocate for effective school health strategies that contribute to optimal health and academic outcomes for all children and youth. To provide leadership and realize this mission, ASHA has identified the following goals for the Association: 1) Promote interdisciplinary collaboration among those who work to improve health and academic outcomes for all children and youth. 2) Build capacity to advocate effectively for coordinated school health and related school and community support systems. 3) Offer professional development opportunities that build members' leadership skills and capacity to plan, develop, coordinate, implement, evaluate, and advocate for effective school health strategies. 4) Provide opportunities to support, exchange, and disseminate research that contributes to the implementation of evidence-based school health strategies. 5) Acquire, utilize, and maintain human, fiscal, and material resources that support the mission of the American School Health Association.
