"This council is essentially an advisory group concerned with the health and wellbeing of staff and students. This council was formed at the district and school building level. There are 20 members that include school staff, community members, family members and students."
"School wellness councils typically assess the school health environment, programs and policies in place and identify ways to strengthen these to improve the health of students and staff. Usually councils will develop and implement an action plan based on what they learn about the school. Some wellness councils also provide advice and expertise to administrators in the building and provide feedback to the district regarding implementation of health related policies and programs."
