A coordinated school health program makes it easy for students and staff to make healthy choices throughout the school day.
To implement school health, each school district in Rockland County has a District Wellness Committee, sometimes called the School Health Advisory Council or SHAC, to coordinate school health efforts such as policy development, program implementation, and trainings. Many school buildings also have their own wellness teams/committees.
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 build strong and healthy schools.
