Vision
We envision a future where every child in Hardin-Jefferson has the opportunity to live a healthful lifestyle, to be healthy and physicall educated, and to transfer that knowledge into action.

Goals
Support a healthy and safe school environment that fosters learning.
Healthy minds and bodies will be promoted through effective school health education and services. 
Academic success will be achieved by empowering our faculty to model healthy behaviors.
Champion the practice of Coordinated School Health by effectively implementing the eight components of SHAC:

♦ Health education   ♦ Counseling

Texas Youth and Fitness study data confirms that healthy children do better in school from attendance and behavior to academics and overall performance!
