Abstract:     
Laws and policies are important tools that can be used to improve the health and safety of children and adolescents in schools. Legal and policy tools may help refine schools’ role in protecting the health of children and adolescents in school environments, motivating them to choose healthy behaviors through policies that encourage improved health and safety, and safeguarding them from multifarious health threats. This report systematically reviews a wide range of relevant legal authorities pertinent to schools that may help shape the health of children and adolescents. It discusses in detail eight areas: 1) health education; 2) physical education; 3) health services; 4) nutrition services; 5) mental health and social services; 6) healthy and safe school environment; 7) health promotion for staff; and 8) family and community involvement. The report provides an overview of the legal and policy landscape and should encourage readers to consider the potential for law and policy to contribute to students’ health and safety.
