The Value of Strategic Partnerships

The reality of providing the range of resources needed to meet students’ physical, mental, emotional, and social health needs, extends well beyond the capacity of any single school district. The WSCC School Health NJ regional grantee works to establish and maintain strategic collaborative partnerships amongst State partners, the school community (school administrators, staff, students and their families) and local and county-based health and social service agencies. The goal of these relationships is to help provide needed resources for healthy students, healthy staff and a healthy school environment. The contribution of resources and/or services can take the form of, but is not limited to:

  • in-kind staff expertise to conduct educational presentations or trainings
  • contributing expertise in areas as such marketing, public relations, technology
  • assisting with data collection, analysis or evaluation services
  • grant-writing assistance
  • providing student incentives, educational materials, office supplies or equipment
  • offering facility space
  • fund raising
  • cash contributions

The strategic partnerships that have been developed and maintained to benefit the health needs of the school community are gratefully acknowledged.
