Coordinated School Health

Connecting Health and Wellness with Learning and Education

4380 Harrison Rd, Lenoir City, TN 37771                                                             (865) 986-2036

The mission of Coordinated School Health (CSH) is to improve student health and their capacity to learn through the support of families, communities, and schools. Funding for CSH is provided by the Tennessee State Legislature through the Department of Education. Matching funds and community resources are necessary to help schools solve complex health issues. The benefits of the program include: 1) reduced absenteeism, 2) fewer behavior problems in the classroom, and 3) improved student health and performance. Special thanks to the Tennessee State Legislature for making Tennessee the first state in the nation to mandate Coordinated School Health statewide.

GoNoodle!
We are happy to announce to you that thanks to the generosity of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee Foundation, every K-5 teacher in Tennessee now has unlimited access to GoNoodle, a website that helps teachers energize their students with short bursts of in-classroom physical activity. GoNoodle’s physical activity breaks (also called brain breaks) are designed to get the wiggles out, focus the classroom, and reinforce core subjects, all in five minutes or less.

Teachers and schools can use GoNoodle for:

● CORE-ALIGNMENT: Brain breaks get students moving while they practice fluency in core-subjects.
● KINESTHETIC LEARNING: Movement is tied closely to content, making fluency practice fun and memorable.
● CUSTOMIZABLE CONTENT: Teachers can create custom sets of lists and questions to assign movement to spelling and math lessons.
● STUDENT HEALTH: Teachers can use GoNoodle to help implement and achieve student health and wellness goals while performing core subject aligned activities.

Feedback from Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee Foundation’s 2014 GoNoodle pilot program in 115 schools across the state was overwhelmingly positive:
“GoNoodle is a game changer for my classroom. Getting students up and moving while we practice math, spelling, and vocab makes my class more exciting. My kids love it!” -Sarah Y., 2nd grade teacher, Morristown, TN

If you'd like to speak with our GoNoodle Engagement Manager to discuss ways that we can implement it effectively into classrooms across Tennessee, please contact:
