The Board of Trustees recognizes a strong link between student health and educational outcomes. To promote healthy eating and physical activity, the District will use the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child model (WSCC) to provide a comprehensive wellness program. (Appendix A: WSCC Model) The Superintendent or designee shall support and reinforce health literacy through WSCC’s 10 components: (1) health education; (2) physical education and physical activity; (3) nutrition environment and services; (4) health services; (5) counseling, psychological, and social services; (6) social and emotional climate; (7) physical environment; (8) employee wellness; (9) family engagement; and (10) community involvement. Research shows that two components, good nutrition and physical activity throughout the day, are strongly correlated with positive student outcomes. Less-than-adequate consumption of specific foods including fruits, vegetables, and dairy products, is associated with lower grades among students. In addition, students who are physically active – do better academically. (American Heart Association, 2010, Nansel, 2010, Van Dusen, 2011)
