COSA Working Group: Scope of Work

The working group identified four priority projects on which to focus its efforts in 2021:

  • Creation of a repository of wellness curricula that schools can access and implement
  • A scholarly publication of findings from the 2020 report
  • Creation of an evaluation tool for schools to use to measure their program's effectiveness
  • Making recommendations about how to address systemic causes of diminished student mental health and wellbeing
