Promoting Healthy Habits that will Last a Lifetime
Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students and staff. The policy was developed by the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model Team that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and district nurse.
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Program builds on the components of the Coordinated School Health Programs, which consists of the following eight components: health services, health education, nutrition, physical education, community/family involvement, counseling/psychological services, staff wellness and a safe environment.
Health and education affect individuals, society, and the economy and, as such, must work together whenever possible. Schools are a perfect setting for this collaboration. Schools are one of the most efficient systems for reaching children and youth to provide health services and programs, as approximately 95 percent of all U.S. children and youth attend school. At the same time, integrating health services and programs more deeply into the day-to-day life of schools and students represents an untapped tool for raising academic achievement and improving learning.
Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Programs is a major avenue for meeting the basic needs of: physical health, safety, being nurtured and loved, and having a sense of positive self-esteem.
