The school district’s Comprehensive Plan contains a broad goal area on safety nets for students, including a specific focus on health, safety, and wellness. This policy is reflective of the school district's commitment to incorporating all facets of wellness into its work in order to better the health of students and other key stakeholders who serve as role models to students – including staff, parents/guardians, and the community – as the school district recognizes that good health among all stakeholders is the basis of strong student success – lifelong academic, social, and personal.
The following two (2) local requirements were added as the basis of the following policy:
1. Inclusion of goals to support nutrition education, physical activity, and awareness of other health promoting behaviors among district staff, teachers, parents/guardians, and siblings.
2. Maintenance of a framework to ensure policy is implemented widely across district schools and embedded in the Comprehensive Plan of the district. Community and family participation is essential to the development and implementation of successful school wellness policies.
