Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative Toolkit

The Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative (AFSI) is a comprehensive approach to asthma management in schools that aligns with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Strategies for Addressing Asthma within a Coordinated School Health Program. AFSI provides the framework that community and school coalitions can use to work toward creating a supportive and safe learning environment for all students.

The Asthma-Friendly Schools Initiative Toolkit is a planning tool based on real-life activities that have been used in schools throughout the U.S. to create a long-term asthma management plan. The Toolkit provides step-by-step guidance that includes tools, templates and resources that aim to keep students healthy, in school and ready to learn.
