Our Mission

To improve overall health and academic achievement of Tulsa County school-aged children in collaboration with students, schools, and the community by aligning learning and health through comprehensive nutrition and health education.

Why Collaborate with It’s All About Kids

It's All About Kids Program

Since its beginning in 2004, the Tulsa Health Department’s It's All About Kids (IAK) program has provided an opportunity for thousands of school children to improve their knowledge, attitudes and behaviors toward nutrition and exercise through comprehensive health education. Learning healthy habits early follows them throughout their lifetime.

Each year, the program reaches over 8,500 students in Tulsa County public school districts, and hosts more than 40 informative and exciting events for parents and families. The program was recognized as a Model Practice in 2008 by the National Association for City and County Health Officials (NACCHO).

It’s All About Kids partners with schools to capture valuable data in the areas of academic improvement, decrease in behavioral referrals, and increase in attendance. IAK follows the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model placing children in the center as the main focus. The WSCC merges components from both the Coordinated School Health model and the Whole Child Framework to align learning and health.

Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child

WSCC Model

The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model was developed by merging the Coordinated School Health model and the Whole Child Framework. The relationship between education and health is evident therefore, the WSCC aligns learning and health rather than focusing on each separately. The child is placed in the center to emphasize the primary focus of the WSCC model. Parents, schools and communities work collaboratively around the child to improve health and academic achievement.

Testimonials

  • "Thank you for all the investment It's All About Kids is making in our students!"


    Mindi Bisdee, Boevers Elementary Community Coordinator
  • "I wanted to take a moment to thank the IAK team and Tulsa Roughnecks for coming to our school.  Sugar Shockers was such a fun and interactive way to remind our students about making healthy life choices!  They are still talking about it and they loved doing the Wobble dance with Oil-E Coyote.  I appreciate all of the help your team offers for our students and teachers.  I have learned so much in spending time with you all.  Again, WHAT A FANTASTIC ASSEMBLY FOR OUR KIDDOS!!!"

    — Susan Early, Physical Education Teacher Mills Elementary
  • "I have heard so many of our PE teachers say they look forward to It's All About Kids training every year.  The IAK staff is amazing, they make elementary PE games fun not only for elementary students, but adults too!  IAK will always be a part of our back to school kickoff for teachers!"

    — Jen Sanders, Tulsa Public Schools Assistant Athletic Director/PE Coordinator
