Welcome to Coordinated School Health!


Coordinated School Health of Union City Schools is committed to promote child and adolescent school health initiatives that improve health outcomes and to support the connection between good health practices, academic achievement and lifelong wellness.

Children who are taught at an early age to make healthy lifestyle choices decrease their risk of obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.

Parents, schools, and communities can make a difference in the health of our children and adolescents by working together to promote health and wellness.

The children of Union City are our future!

If you are interested in participating in the development, review, or updating of the Local School Wellness Policy please email Kristen Miles at [email protected]
