Philadelphia schools experiment with mental health program for students

The Senate Appropriations Committee met at Temple University Tuesday to analyze the Philadelphia Healthy and Safe Schools Initiative that has kicked off in two inner-city elementary schools, Bethune and Kenderton.

Under Act 44, Temple University Lewis Katz School of Medicine will work on implementing reforms at two K-8 schools in Philadelphia that take into account students’ mental health.

Wolf Administration urges schools to take advantage of more milk options

Wolf Administration urges schools to take advantage of more milk options

The Wolf Administration hosted a press conference Tuesday morning to discuss a federal change that now expands access to more types of milk for students. 

In the past schools needed a waiver to obtain one-percent flavored milk instead of just skim milk.

For the 2018-2019 school year schools are no longer required to gain a waiver to access one percent milk. The Wolf Administration is hoping to get the word out so schools will take advantage of the new flexibility.
