Promoting Policy for a Public School District

In public school systems, a champion can initiate great change.  The champion can leverage his/her effectiveness by first building a coalition to jointly introduce a sun safety proposal to the governing board.  Board members, administrators, teachers, parents, skin cancer survivors, and local experts, such as dermatologists, are candidates for inclusion in the coalition.   To the extent possible, those who will be most closely involved with implementing the policy should be included in its development and supportive of the coalition’s mission.  The governing board may then adopt a policy and direct the Superintendent to develop procedures that promote sun safety at all the schools within the district.
