School Wellness Coalition

(Statement of Goals & Strategies)


It is clear that children's health plays a significant role in being a successful student and greatly influences learning and achievement. Good nutrition and on-going physical activity are key components of a healthy lifestyle. Comprehensive nutrition and physical activity programs can enhance students' overall health, behavior, and academic achievement.
This website can help school districts by providing policies, procedures, and resources for establishing a wellness program that engages students, parents, school staff, and community members. This will assist in the development, implementation, and monitoring of policies/practices that promote healthy eating and increased physical activity.
