Each school district in Rockland County has a wellness committee that meets several times during the school year. Various topics are addressed in those meetings related to student wellness but all are responsible for updating and ensuring implementation of the Local Wellness Policy. District Wellness Coordinators meet twice a year to receive peer support, share challenges and solutions and learn about trends and resources.
The next meeting will be in June 2016. Details to be announced.
