Introducing New 2020 INSHAPE Schools

The following Indiana schools were recently recognized as INSHAPE SCHOOLS for the 2020-2021 school year: INSHAPE SCHOOLS succeed by emphasizing student health to improve academic achievement and by promoting a culture/climate of wellness (source: CDC's Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child). The program helps schools promote the power of the Whole Child to staff, students, families, and communities. School principals use the distinction to communicate their commitment to student well-being and academic achievement.

INSHAPE schools receive a packet of resources, a school banner, and press announcement.
Benefits include 1) new and updated resources for social-emotional learning, e-Learning, distance learning, and advocacy, 2) educator resources for standards-based health and physical education, 3) full INSHAPE member benefits for a lead administrator (principal) and a lead health/physical educator, 4) free and discounted professional growth opportunities including the INSHAPE annual state conference, 5) collaboration opportunities and best practice sharing with other INSHAPE SCHOOLS and 6) an INSHAPE SCHOOL banner.
More schools will be announced later this semester. Does your school qualify as an INSHAPE school? All Indiana K-12 schools committed to the INSHAPE SCHOOL pledge (below) qualify.

All health and physical educators are encouraged to discuss the benefits of becoming an INSHAPE SCHOOL with their building supervisor. The cost of the annual program is $29 for current INSHAPE members ($79 for non-members). Sign up during October to receive resources and your school banner during the fall semester.
