In February 2021 a virtual School Health and Wellness Institute was held for Alaska. During this time of COVID-19, presenters and room hosts offered their time and wisdom regarding important topics for our schools’ students, staff, and families. We wish to thank all who participated and are offering these recordings for those who could not attend those days in February.

The SHWI training was established in 2005 by the Department of Education & Early Development and the School Health program in the Department of Health and Social Services, Division of Public Health. It initially focused on the development of school wellness teams and policies and has since grown much larger in scope and attendance, addressing many new emerging school health and safety topics while providing important professional development opportunities for school staff. This year the virtual format will make the sessions more readily available to those who in a “normal” year could not travel.

We welcome teachers, parents, school nurses, counselors, school administrators and staff, school board members, school nutrition staff, and others who work with schools interested in learning to cultivate healthier and more successful students.

The Institute is provided by the Division of Public Health in partnership with the Department of Education and Early Development.
