The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) model acknowledges the link between child health and academic success.  By keeping the WSCC model in the forefront during the planning process, schools can align their academic goals with the health and well being of their students, families and employees.  Implementing wellness policies, practices and environmental supports, ensures that students and school employees have access to the healthy choices necessary for learning readiness, and improved morale and productivity.

To implement school health programs, many schools form a wellness team of 5 to 6 enthusiastic staff, faculty, students and parents to create and coordinate wellness activities. School districts that use federal funds for their school meal programs, must form a district wellness committee that meets at least four times a year to:  

  • oversee implementation and evaluation of the wellness policy 
  • address timely issues affecting the health of the school community
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 school health programs.
