United Way of Greater Lorain County

Common VIEW

Common VIEW logoThe Common Vision for Improved Education and Wellness (Common VIEW) is a collaborative of nine partners working together in the Clearview and Midview school districts to improve health knowledge, develop communication and life skills, and create school environments in which risky behaviors are avoided. The goal of the collaborative is to ensure safer schools and positive social environments that improve both educational and social outcomes for students in the districts.

Common VIEW provides wrap-around services within school buildings that address the connection between healthy behaviors and academic achievement.

Initiatives include: coordinating school menus and concessions to include fresh and local produce, providing family fit nights in school facilities, creating walking and biking paths for safe and healthy travel to school and integrating health and wellness messaging into existing curriculum and presentations.

Common VIEW is made possible by the following partners:

  • Alcohol and Drug Addiction Services Board of Lorain County
  • Clearview Local Schools
  • Cleveland Clinic Lorain Institute
  • Educational Service Center of Lorain County
  • Lorain County Board of Mental Health
  • Lorain County General Health District
