The Bloomington School District sponsors a Wellness Committee that provides support to schools to implement the Wellness Policy and Guidelines.
The Committee develops and provides tools and resources about wellness; providing technical assistance on the Wellness Policy; and shares successes and examples of wellness initiatives across the district.
The purpose of the Wellness Committee is to support schools, teachers, and parents in implementation of wellness policy and guidelines, and to help the school district comply with federal statutes that require that schools establish wellness policies.
The Wellness Committee consists of volunteers, including:
- Food program staff
- School administrators
- Members of school-based organizations (Parent Teacher Student Association)
- Local health professionals (Bloomington Public Health)
