  • What RSWS does

    • Throughout the four counties in RESA 3, the Regional School Wellness Specialist (RSWS) works to develop a Coordinated School-Public Health Partnership.  This partnership will build collaboration among community, schools, and county school systems to assist students and staff in achieving healthy lifestyles.  This will ultimately increase academic achievement and enhance student success.  The Coordinated School-Public Health Program (CSPHP) addresses 8 components of wellness such as:  staff support and wellness promotion; a healthy and safe school environment; family, business, and community involvement; guidance/counseling, psychological, and social services; nutrition services; physical education; and health education.  This CSPHP is a collaborative effort supported by the Bureau of Public Health and the West Virginia Department of Education’s Office of Child Nutrition and Healthy Schools.
