Changes to School Health Index Webpage
Dear Healthy School Teams,
We are excited to announce that on or about August 09, 2012, CDC will update its School Health Index (SHI) on-line, interactive assessment tool to reflect new 2012 changes. Changes have been made to many of the SHI modules to incorporate the new topic, update content on existing topics, and reflect a more coordinated approach to school health. This message is to notify you of this pending change as it might have implications for your current and future SHI assessments
The updated SHI 2012 edition will replace the current version of the on-line, interactive assessment tool. The SHI 2012 update will not change user’s access to SHI—your reference number will remain the same and still provide you access to your team’s SHI. In addition, the 2012 update is not expected to change your current, active SHI or any archived versions in your SHI History. If you have concerns that your current data might be lost as a result of this update, you may wish to archive your current SHI by starting a new SHI prior to August 09, 2012. Remember, you will be unable to update or edit your current SHI once it is archived.
Any SHI created after August 09, 2012 will reflect the new SHI 2012 update. This will be the only version available to new SHI interactive users and for those current interactive SHI users that choose to "Create a New SHI."
Welcome Back to School from CSH!
The Office of Coordinated School Health hopes you have a healthy and safe school year!
We have many exciting things planned for the school year... updates will be coming soon!
