A school wellness committee is an action-oriented advisory group that focuses on the health and well-being of students, staff, and families in a school community. The school wellness committee implements the district wellness policy and leads other health-related initiatives

School wellness committees may also:

  • Monitor and evaluate the implementation of district health and wellness policies and programs

  • Advise the school board or district on related school or community health issues

  • Organize health-promoting programs or events in the district or community
