Whole Child Framework Start Up Guide for School Leaders

The Whole Child Start Up Guide for School Leaders provides guidance on how to implement Whole Child Framework through a continuous improvement process. The guide provides information on implementation of systemic practices for whole child education through the lens of the Ohio Improvement Process; however, the information provided can be transferred to any continuous improvement process schools and districts use to plan, implement and evaluate policies, programs and practices: 

  • Step 1: Identify Critical Needs 
  • Step 2: Organize for Success 
  • Step 3: Plan for Implementation 
  • Step 4: Implement and Monitor 
  • Step 5: Examine, Reflect and Adjust 

School and district leaders can use the guide to ensure shared leadership with parents, caregivers and community partners to help schools examine their programs and supports so that each child is challenged to discover and learn, prepared to pursue a fulfilling post-high school path and empowered to become resilient, lifelong learner who contributes to society.
