Funds from Title IV of ESEA, Safe and Drug-Free Schools, can be used to deliver drug prevention and conflict resolution education within a CSHP. Funds can also be used to train counselors and school nurses to develop policies that improve the school environment and to work with physical educators to develop ways to keep athletes from becoming involved with drugs. Student Assistance Programs, Peer Mediation Training, and other early intervention activities may also be implemented with Safe and Drug-Free Schools funds.
Other federal funding streams arrive at state health agencies. Although these funds may not be specifically targeted to schools, some might logically be used for CSHPs, including the following:
Chronic Disease and Health Promotion funds from the CDC for tobacco prevention, promotion of physical activity, and diabetes prevention, can be used for training teachers who deliver focused health education dealing with these topics. CDC funding for HIV/AIDS prevention can often be used by schools for classroom programs.
Maternal and Child Health block grant funds (Title V) are often used to employ school nurses and to develop school-based health centers.
Specific disease prevention initiatives can be undertaken in schools
