Student Wellness   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Education acknowledges the link between student health and learning; as such, it desires to provide a comprehensive program which promotes healthy living. Schools have a duty to help prevent injury, disease, and chronic health conditions that can lead to disability or early death. Similarly, students have a responsibility for their own physical and emotional health as demonstrated by health-enhancing attitudes and behaviors.

The Board shall ensure the enumerated points:

1. Every school shall foster a climate that nurtures learning, achievement and growth of character in order to promote a safe and healthy place for children and employees to learn and work.

2. All students shall be taught the essential knowledge and skills they need to become "health literate" - that is, to make health-enhancing choices and to avoid behaviors that can damage their health and well being.

3. The Physical Education Program shall provide the opportunity for all students to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary to participate in a lifetime of healthy physical activity.

4. School staff shall be encouraged to model healthy lifestyles.

5. School leaders shall ensure that the nutrition, health services and social services children need to learn are provided either at the school site and/or in cooperation with other community agencies.

The district's Wellness Policy utilizes the California Department of Education State Frameworks to ensure that a comprehensive plan is established. The District Wellness Committee members will meet annually to review the implementation of these policies and regulations and to provide an annual report to the Board.
