Coordinated school health makes it easy for schools to implement their wellness policies and ensure that students and staff can make healthy choices throughout the school day.

To implement school health, many schools have their own wellness team to coordinate wellness activities. Each school district in Rockland County has a District Wellness Council that coordinates:

  • Wellness policy updating and evaluation
  • Wellness policy implementation throughout the district
  • Communication channels between schools and the District Wellness Council
The Rockland County School Health and Wellness Coalition works with educators and administrators, parents and community-based organizations countywide to raise awareness of best practices and available resources to support healthy school programs.
