Additional Guidance for Using CDC’s Virtual Healthy School

  • You can visit the Virtual Healthy School rooms in any order by clicking on a room door on the initial school layout or selecting a room thumbnail on the carousel. The directional arrows or advance dots below the school layout can also be used to navigate to different rooms.

  • You can return to the Virtual Healthy School layout on this main screen by clicking on the Home button.

  • Each room has clickable objects that relate to the different components of the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model. When you hover over a clickable object, it will get bigger and display a green outline. When clicked, you will see a popup with information and examples of a good school health practice relating to that object. You can also access objects and their popups by selecting them on the notepad in the bottom left corner.

  • You can get more information about the WSCC model by clicking on the WSCC model button. Click in the center of the WSCC model for general information or click on the individual WSCC components in the model ring for more in-depth information. Click on the outer ribbons to read a journal article titled “Building Sustainable Health and Education Partnerships: Stories from Local Communities.”
