Annual Wellness Reports

WellnessPer our School Wellness Policy 458, each school will complete an assessment tool (Action for Healthy Kids) based on the School Health Index (SHI). The purpose of the assessment is for schools to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their health and safety policies and programs, and develop action plans for improving student health.

Promoting healthy and safe behaviors among students provide young people with the knowledge and skills needed to become healthy and productive adults. Improving student health and safety can increase students’ capacity to learn, reduce absenteeism and improve physical fitness and mental alertness.
