Dear Superintendent Mitchell:
It is with great pleasure that we announce the School District of Hamilton County has been recognized as a Florida Healthy School District at the SILVER level for the period of May 2017 through April 2019 based on submission of the Florida Healthy School District Self-Assessment.
The self-assessment tool is based on sustainable infrastructure, policy, programs, and practices identified from national and state guidelines, best practices, and Florida statutes. It was developed by the Florida Coordinated School Health Partnership (CSHP) out of a desire to recognize and celebrate the hard work and success of school districts related to physical, mental and social health of students and staff. The assessment was written by school experts, evaluated, piloted and field tested for three years before being released in 2009. 
CSHP, in partnership with Florida Action for Healthy Kids (FLAFHK), Florida Association of District School Superintendents (FADSS) and Florida Healthy Kids Corporation are proud to recognize 45 Florida school districts for establishing a culture and climate that embraces the Coordinated School Health approach to reduce barriers to learning and support academic achievement. 
The School District of Hamilton County demonstrated outstanding scores related to policies and processes in the following areas:
 District Infrastructure (83%) – A well-established district infrastructure demonstrating strong administrative and community support leads to sustainability of health policies and practices. 
Nutrition Services and Education (82%) – Children who are well nourished are able to achieve in school and healthful eating reduces the risk of life-long chronic health conditions. 
Healthy School Environment (97%) – A healthy school environment reflects the physical plant as well as the social climate of the district, including safety, personal interaction and violence prevention.
Family and Community Involvement (88%) – Family and Community Involvement is key to garnering support and resources from community members and involving parents as partners.
