Mission To promote and maintain healthy lifestyle choices in Oklahoma through preventive, community-based school health education programs for students, their families, and faculty.
Background Healthy Schools Oklahoma (HSOk) was developed in 1997 to promote and maintain healthy lifestyles among children, families and school faculty. Participation in the program benefits not only students but your entire school community. The founding partners of HSOk are Oklahoma County Medical Society, Oklahoma City Public Schools, Oklahoma City-County Health Department and the Oklahoma State Department of Health. The program is also endorsed by the Oklahoma State Department of Education and recognized by the Oklahoma State Legislature as a program of excellence. 
Impact HSOk has 20 years of data showing significant improvements in all schools for the following variables:  physical fitness scores (as measured by FitnessGram), nutrition and health knowledge, attitudes, and behavior (as measured by Health Priorities Concern Survey). Data also indicate improvements in academic performance and student behavior. All data are analyzed and evaluated by Oklahoma State University Department of Human Environmental Sciences.  HSOk began with 8 elementary schools in OKC public schools and now has 67 schools across the state in 20 counties and 29 districts.
Needs Over 80% of funds generated goes directly to the member elementary schools in the form of grants, equipment, supplies, program components, health education curricula, and staff support.  Entering schools receive up to $5000 per year in the first 3 years.  In subsequent years, schools may receive up to $1000 in grants plus free training and staff support.
CEO/Executive Director Statement Healthy Schools Oklahoma is a very lean organization with a majority of funds going directly or indirectly to elementary schools in our program.  HSOk has created a public private partnership that allows for a great deal of flexibility.  Each year, new schools apply to participate in the HSOk program. The principal and at least 2 teachers or staff people sign the application showing support. HSOk staff conducts site visits of the schools and recommend to the board for selection into the program.  This process ensures that our schools are committed to meeting the program goals prior to selection.  As such, we have had only a few schools drop out of the program in our 20 year history.  We mobilize community support for our schools.  Our Adopt A Doc and Adopt A Dentist programs are models for other states.  These professionals volunteer time and energy to the program.  Volunteer nutritionists complement existing nutrition programs in the schools. HSOk has received federal and state grants and funding from foundations, civic organizations, and NGOs. Corporate supporters include banks, food companies, energy, fitness supply, and the local community. 
Board Chair Statement The board, staff, volunteers, and supporting organizations are committed to improving the health, physical fitness, and well-being of the elementary school children we serve. The teachers, administrators, support staff, and parents of these schools are committed to the program and as such drive personal benefits from the program as well.

Program Short-term SuccessHelpDescription of short-term achievement(s) or improvement(s) that will result from this program. The numbers of schools that apply for our program each year are indicative of the popularity and need for the program.  Resources are the limiting factor in the number of schools admitted to the program.
Program Long-term SuccessHelpDescription of the ultimate change(s) that will result from this program. This may be far into the future or represent an ideal state. Our data indicate that significant positive changes are measured in physical fitness, health and nutrition knowledge, attitudes, and behavior, and academic performance.  It is not known if these changes are carried into adolescent and adulthood.  School attrition is very low (<5%).
Program Success MonitoringHelpDescription of the tools used to measure or track program impact. In each school we test students using Cooper's FitnessGram(tm), measuring aerobic capacity, body composition, flexibility, and strength.  We also administer Health Priorities Concern survey, which measures knowledge, attitude, and behavior on a wide range of nutrition and health topics.  We also compare our schools' academic performance with demographically similar schools that do not participate in our program.  Our data have shown consistently significant positive outcomes for 20 years for every school in our program.
Examples of Program SuccessHelpSpecific examples of changes in behaviors or testimonies of changes that demonstrate program success. In addition to conclusive quantitative pre and post test data, many testimonials have surfaced over the years.  One mother quit smoking after her son brought home tobacco prevention information from school and pleaded with her to quit.
