Abstract: University health education faculty assisted an urban school system in a southeastern state to plan and conduct an assessment of the school health program in three middle schools. A School Health Subcommittee was formed that included administrators, teachers, school nurses, parents, student, and representatives from nonprofit agencies. The Subcomminee activated three middle school wellness teams to identify program strengths and areas for improvement during the 2003-04 school year.
