Supporting Student Wellness
Each Child, Our Future,
The 2020-2021 Student Wellness and Success Funds Report summarizes how schools and districts used funds alongside community partners to address the needs of the whole child.
Ohio’s strategic plan for education, seeks to ensure each student is challenged, prepared and empowered for his or her future by way of an excellent prekindergarten-grade 12 education. Ohio’s schools can succeed by meeting the needs of the Whole Child
– the physical, social, emotional and intellectual aspects of the child’s well-being.
Many schools and districts across Ohio found innovative and effective ways to provide whole child supports, including mental and behavioral health care services, to children using Student Wellness and Success Funds in the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years. Ohio House Bill 110 continues to support these services with the Disadvantaged Pupil Impact Aid and Base Cost Student Wellness and Success Component. The adoption of the new school funding formula incorporates the Student Wellness and Success funding provided in previous years into the formula restricting a portion of the funding that schools and districts will receive for this critical work. Ohio law directs where and how this funding can be spent.
Over the next two years, many schools will have three separate funding streams available to provide student wellness activities. Those three funding sources include: Disadvantaged Pupil Impact Aid, Base Cost Student Wellness and Success Component and remaining funds from Student Wellness and Success distributed during FY20 and FY21.
