Asthma-Friendly Schools

To support the academic performance and improve the health status of students with asthma in Florida, FAC established the Asthma-Friendly Schools Recognition with the support of local, state, and academic partners.

With the goal of improving student health, attendance, and academic achievement, the Florida Asthma Coalition established a voluntary recognition opportunity to acknowledge schools with exceptional asthma management programs. The Florida Asthma Coalition recognized the long-term impact of academic success and the link between health and academics. Academic success is a key indicator of the overall well-being of students and a primary predictor and determinant of adult health outcomes.

Step One: Complete the Asthma-Friendly Schools Recognition Interest Form and submit it to [email protected]. Once received, your school will be connected with an Asthma-Friendly Mentor that can assist your school with the application process.

Step Two: Click here for the 2023-2024 Asthma-Friendly Schools Application. If the RN/LPN assigned to your school does not have a current Asthma Management and Education Online certification, please email us.

Questions about the application? Contact your local Asthma Friendly Mentor to discuss the criteria for Asthma-Friendly School recognition.
