Wellness Policy

Student Wellness

 
The Governing Board recognizes the link between student health and learning. Children and youth that begin each day as healthy individuals are more receptive to the learning experience and more likely to succeed now and in the future. Further, the Board also believes that a healthy staff can more effectively perform their job responsibilities and model appropriate wellness behaviors to students.
 
The following regulations support this policy which encourages a comprehensive approach to school and community wellness that is sensitive to the needs of students, staff, and community. It addresses all components of the Coordinated School Health Program as recommended by both the California Department of Education and Department of Health Services.
 
School sites are encouraged to develop and establish “Wellness Committees” to plan, implement, and evaluate activities that support the Wellness Policy. 
 
All regulations are subject to the budget constraints and priorities of any given year.
