School_Health_Program.png

A coordinated school health program makes it easy for students and staff to make healthy choices throughout the school day.

To implement school health, many schools have their own wellness team and each school district in Rockland County has a District Wellness Council to coordinate:

  • Wellness policy updating and evaluation
  • Wellness policy implementation in schools throughout the district
  • Communication to school leaders about training in school wellness¬†
The countywide Rockland County School Health and Wellness Coalition works with school professionals, parents and community-based organizations to raise awareness of best practices and available resources to create and maintain healthy schools.
