KDHE Awards Healthy Schools Grants

Kansas schools are getting thousands of dollars to keep students healthy.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment awarded grants for health and wellness programs.

The largest recipient was the Seaman school district in Topeka. It will get $16,000.

Other recipients include $4500 for Emporia; $3750 for Jeffreson West; $2500 for Washburn Rural High School and $3500 for Nemaha Valley.

The money is meant to encourage schools to develop and strengthen district wellness policy. Kansas Education Commissioner Alexa Posny says improved health behaviors help create an environment that is more conducive to learning.
