American School Health Association (ASHA) resolutions define the Association's position on specific school health issues.
Interested ASHA members or subgroups submit proposed resolutions to the ASHA Advocacy Committee, a standing committee composed of members representing the various professions within the Association.
The committee: 1) accepts the proposed resolution, 2) rejects the proposed resolution, or 3) asks the submitting party to revise the proposed resolution. The committee forwards accepted proposed resolutions to the ASHA House of Delegates who then recommend to the ASHA Board of Directors acceptance or rejection of the resolutions. The Board of Directors makes the final decision to approve or reject proposed resolutions.
The resolutions in this section are currently active. The year approved and the year revised are noted on each resolution. The Table of Contents lists resolutions alphabetically within a category. Some resolutions appear in two or more categories to reflect how elements of the coordinated school health program intertwine.
ASHA uses these resolutions to guide its work and encourages health professionals and others who deal with the health and well-being of children and youth to use the resolutions for guidance in their work.
