Health & Wellness Committee
The focus for this group of individuals is to work on improving wellness policies and practices for the district and schools. Local school wellness policies play an important role in preventing and reducing childhood obesity. Policies provide assurances that school meals and other foods meet minimum federal nutrition guidelines, as well as increasing opportunities for students’ physical activity. Research shows that when children eat nutritious foods and are physically active, they have better academic outcomes such as:
Fewer behavioral problems.
Higher grades and test scores.
Increased graduation rates.
