Coordinated School Health Program

CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health)
Coordinated School Health Program

In June 2005, the 78th Texas Legislature passed into law Senate Bill 42 (SB42). Senate Bill 42 addresses children’s health through a coordinated school health approach to preventing obesity, cardiovascular disease and Type II diabetes in elementary, middle and junior high school students. The legislation was in response to the escalating health disparities in Texas youth and built upon the requirement for elementary schools to implement a Coordinated School Health Program established by Senate Bill 19.

Brazosport Independent School District has adopted and implemented the CATCH program.
