Wellness Policy

Wellness Policy

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district 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. Persons interested in attending school health advisory council (SHAC) meetings to work on behalf of the district to review the wellness policy and wellness plan can contact the Child Nutrition Executive Director, Alissa Gustof, at 469-593-0101 or the Director of Health & Physical Education, Kellie Sellers, at 469-593-7491. During the latest annual assessment of the local wellness policy, it was determined that the policy is being properly implemented and the goals described in the local wellness plan are being achieved.   

Key Areas of our Wellness Policy

Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:

  • Nutrition Education
  • Physical activity
  • Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.
