Active Schools is a program designed to increase physical activity opportunities for children and youth before, during, and after school. Through Active Schools, the La Crosse County Health Department is collaborating with local schools to provide more opportunities for Coulee Region students to be physically active. Strategies for increasing activity may include:

  • Active Classrooms incorporate active breaks and active lessons within the classroom setting.
  • Active Recess provides all students with additional recess activities to encourage physical activity.
  • Active Minutes in Physical Education increases the number of minutes students are active during PE such as through active attendance taking and other methods.
  • Before/After School Activities offer a wide variety of active before and after school programs for students.
  • Family and Community Activities may include active homework, physical activity tracking logs and challenges, encouraging physical activity be incorporated at home with families, and promoting community options for physical activity.
