District 6 Wellness Policy

To improve the health of students and families. This mission will be accomplished through education, environmental changes, and opportunities to establish life-long healthy nutrition and physical activity habits.

Overarching Goals

Student Wellness Policy Committee

The Student Wellness Policy Committee meets four times per school year.  The committee is made up of nutrition professionals, P.E. teachers, district administrators, School Board members, school nurses, parents, wellness advocates, and community members.  These individuals have a passion for wellness and understand the importance of proper nutrition and adequate physical activity in our schools.  This group makes recommendations for school wellness, plans for the implementation of the wellness policy, evaluates the progress the schools have made, and reports this progress to the public.  If you are interested in getting involved with school wellness, please contact the district's Wellness Specialist at 970-348-6622 or by emailing District6-Wellness@greeleyschools.org.  Or, if you would like to join the committee, please fill out the application at www.greeleyschools.org/Page/5185.

District 6 Wellness Assessments

During the 2011-12 school year, the Student Wellness Policy Committee developed an assessment form for use annually within District 6 schools to evaluate how well the Wellness Policy and other best practices have been implemented.  Along with the Wellness Policy's objectives, this assessment tool also looks at how well schools are utilizing resources available to them in the district and if they are aligning with the criteria established in the HealthierUS School Challenge.  
The assessment tool, along with scores for the District 6 schools during the past two school years are included below. Please note that because the assessment tool includes more than just information about the Wellness Policy, some schools may be implementing the policy itself better or worse than is reflected in the school's score.
