Groups partner to train educators

RMC Health, the Colorado Department of Education and The Colorado Education Initiative are partnering to present a training session for school level staff to foster healthy student choices outside the classroom, according to a news release.

The training, which will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 29 at the George P. Sauer Human Services Center, 325 Seventh St., will provide attendees with solutions to many of the obstacles currently faced by schools when trying to impact students' health outside the cafeteria, according to the release.

The training will also help staff and parent advocates understand the basic components of creating a shift in the school food culture that aligns with current efforts and has lasting effects.

Implementation guides and resources are among the tools that will be provided to help attendees take the first steps in providing healthier student opportunities and environments. The training is free, and $100 per participant is available to offset substitute teacher pay. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
