Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.


We would like to let the Orcutt community know that kids do come first! Therefore, we would like you to be aware that our school district has a local educational authority, an (LEA).  This person is responsible to oversee the actions and requirements of the wellness committee, to assure that the school wellness policy is being implemented, and finally that the school wellness policy is compliant.  The LEA for The Orcutt Union School District is Mr. Bill Young, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services.   


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.

At Orcutt Union School District, the health of your children is important to us.  We would like to invite anyone interested to attend a Wellness Committee Meeting.  We meet quarterly, in November, February and June. If you have an interest in being part of our committee, please contact the Child Nutrition Department at 938-8926.
