The Kentucky (KY) School Health and Physical Education (SHAPE) Network will provides a comprehensive approach for engaging schools across the state to promote healthy schools: nutrition policies, physical education/activity policies and staff wellness.
Our team has members both at the Kentucky Department of Education and the Kentucky Department for Public Health.
Key collaborative partners include Go365 and the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.
How we are funded
The Department for Public Health is the recipient of the CDC State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors, and Promote School Health at both the Basic and Enhanced levels. This grant cultivates the state level partnership between the Department for Public Health (DPH) and KY Department of Education (KDE). Coordinated School Health funding from this grant will provide for state and regional staff, and support for professional development events through the KY SHAPE Network.
