School Wellness teams (at every PSD school) develop School Health Improvement plans with goals centered around the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model. Teams assess wellness strengths and weaknesses at schools while developing plans. Learn more about the WSWC model
Why School Wellness?
• Aligns integration and collaboration between education and health to improve each child's cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development.
• Healthy, active students are better learners.
• Provides schools opportunities to create an environment conducive to healthy lifestyle choices.
• Acknowledges community responsibility to support efforts to uphold high nutrition and physical activity standards for students.

Healthy Schools Certification
PSD Wellness in partnership with the Wellness Advisory Council for Schools (WACS) have developed a Healthy Schools Certification that recognizes outstanding schools, which have met health, wellness, and policy compliance. The Healthy Schools Certification celebrates schools that implement best practices and initiatives to integrate wellness into their school climate and culture.
