The Superintendent or designee will be responsible for the formation of a Wellness Committee which may include the following members: School board member, district administrator, district food service representative, teacher of physical education, school nurse, school counselor, student, parent/guardian, and representatives of community organization(s)/general public.
The Wellness Committee shall serve as an advisory committee, providing guidance to the Board regarding student health issues and possible revisions, improvements, monitoring, and implementation of the Wellness Policy. This policy was developed by the Wellness Policy Committee, as required by law, to recommend to the Board for adoption.
The Wellness goals/guidelines will be monitored as follows:
The District Wellness Committee shall meet at a minimum of once a year to review and revise, if needed, policy content and to design and evaluate implementation plans throughout district schools. A progress report will be prepared after each meeting for the superintendent, which will evaluate the implementation of the policy and regulations and include recommended changes or revisions. All meeting dates and times will be posted on the school district’s website and meeting minutes will be available to the public. This committee will report the Board by February 1st of each school year of any suggestions or changes.
The Food Service Director will provide an annual report (at the end of each school year) to the Superintendent and School Board members on the District's progress toward meeting these goals and on any further recommendations of the Wellness Committee.
