Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

Our District's student wellness policy focuses on providing school environments that promote the general well-being, mental and physical capacity, and learning ability of each student. The Boise School District promotes healthy schools by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning environment.

Our Wellness Committee develops, implements, monitors, and reviews District nutrition and physical activity practices. Committee membership consists of school board members, administrators, food service staff, health professionals, PE teachers, students, parents and the public.  If you are interested in becoming a member of our District student wellness committee, please contact [email protected] or call 208-854-4090 for more information.

Sharing the Message of Wellness

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
