The Council on School Health develops policy statements, clinical reports and technical reports to improve the health of all children, covering a variety of topics, including school start times, recess, roles of school health professionals, medical emergencies occurring at schools, school-based health centers, snacks and sweetened beverages, suspension and expulsion, and many other issues. A full list of policies authored by COSH can be found on this Pediatrics page.

Resources to support AAP school health policy implementation can be found on the school health patient care page and other related patient-care pages, including epilepsy, concussion, LGBTQ+ health and wellness and mental health.
