Healthy Zone School

The Cooper Institute® (CI) has developed the Healthy Zone School Recognition Program, which will use evidence-based knowledge and best practices to assist schools in creating a school environment that is optimal in promoting healthy behaviors. CI is delighted to partner with the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas (UWMD) and the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on this 2-tier program that will 1) honor schools for their healthy practices (Healthy Zone Schools) and 2) assist schools that wish to establish an environment that is optimal for healthy behaviors (Healthy Zone Schools - In Training).
