  • Learner Supports:  the Iowa Department of Educations provides resources, including the following: 
  • The Whole Child Education ASCD provides resources to assure action and implementation to assure the safety, well being, and education of each child.
  • The Whole Child Initiative – ASCD  Explore resources and opportunities for action here and on the Whole Child web site to change the face of education policy and practice. 
  • Whole School, Whole Child, Whole Community (WSCC)  The focus of ASCD's WSCC model is an ecological approach that is directed at the whole school, with the school in turn drawing its resources and influences from the whole community and serving to address the needs of the whole child. ASCD and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) encourage use of the model as a framework for improving students' learning and health in our nation's schools.
