Scott County Central

Media Literacy is essential to understanding and addressing children's health concerns. Today, children spend an average of 40 hours per week watching television. This sedentary lifestyle, combined with the steady flow of commercial advertising has contributed greatly to the increasing number of overweight and inactive children.

Healthy and Active Scott County Central consists of three primary components to address this issue:

  • A Wellness Council

  • New Classroom Curriculum

  • School-Home-Community Partnerships

  • These will provide teachers, students, and community members with access, information, and strategies to live more healthy and active lifestyles.


    Program Objectives

  • Engage students in healthy behaviors

  • Provide Media Literacy and Health training for teachers, parents, and students

  • Maintain a website to connect partners with best practices and current research

  • Provide new opportunities to participate in healthy activities

  • Establish a creative outlet for student-produced advocacy

  • Youth Empowerment in Action!
