Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model is the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development’s (ASCD) Whole Child approach, but takes a more specific health and wellbeing focus. The WSCC Model highlights the School Health Components which every school should have to ensure the health, safety, and wellbeing of their students, staff, and environment.
The WSCC model combines and builds on elements of the traditional coordinated school health approach and the whole child framework by:
- Responding to the call for greater alignment, integration, and collaboration between education and health to improve each child’s cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.
- Incorporating the components of a coordinated school health program around the tenets of a whole child approach to education.
- Providing a framework to address the symbiotic relationship between learning and health.
