How we accomplish our goals
Partners for School Wellness
Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed with health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, students, administrators, guidance counselors, and the school nurse.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
Key Areas of our Wellness Policy
Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:
The Atlanta Board of Education promotes student success and healthy schools by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as a part of the total learning environment. The Board supports a healthy environment where children learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. Schools contribute to the basic health status of children by facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition and physical activity. Improved health optimizes student academic performance potential and ensures student achievement.
