About Us

The Tulsa Health Department’s School Health program is proud to be able to partner with elementary schools in Tulsa County.


The Tulsa Health Department’s School Health program was established in 2004 and continues to serve our community by aligning with the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model providing programming, services or resources in all ten component areas of the model. The program, formerly titled “It’s All About Kids,” was recognized as a Model Practice in 2008 and in 2019 by the National Association for City and County Health Officials (NACCHO).

Our School Health program partners with schools to capture valuable data in the areas of academic improvement, decrease in behavioral referrals, and increase in attendance. Each year, the program reaches more than 50,000 students in Tulsa County public school districts both virtually and in-person, and hosts more than 40 informative and exciting events for parents and families. 


To improve overall health and academic achievement of Tulsa County school-aged children in collaboration with students, schools, and the community by aligning learning and health through comprehensive skills-based health education.


To improve the quality of life among Tulsa County children by increasing health and physical literacy to positively change attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors.
