Colorado Healthy Schools Smart Source (Smart Source) is an inventory of best practices in school health, completed once per school by school staff. Schools and districts use Smart Source to help inform programs and policies to improve student health. Data from HKCS and Smart Source are complementary and can be used together to provide a more complete picture of youth and school health. Check out this video to learn more!
Smart Source is administered to K-12 schools in the fall of odd-numbered school years.
