Student Wellness Policy CommitteeThe 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. (See Student Wellness Committee Members HERE). 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 this application and return to District6-Wellness@greeleyschools.org.
Below is a PowerPoint that provides an overview of the student wellness policy and what our Action Teams are prioritizing. If you'd like a more complete view of our policy and goals, please see the Implementation Plan linked below under "District 6 Wellness Policy Documents."
District 6 Wellness Assessments
In 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 were implemented. Along with the Wellness Policy's objectives, this assessment tool also looked at how well schools were utilizing resources available to them in the district and if they were aligning with the criteria established in the HealthierUS School Challenge. That assessment tool can be found here. Scores for D6 schools from 2011-2016 can be found here: Elementary and Secondary. The 2015-16 school year was the last year this paper version was used. 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.
In the 2016-17 school year all D6 schools (except some charters) participated in the statewide assessment, Smart Source. In addition, an electronic assessment was developed specifically for D6 schools to further evaluate components unique to the D6 Wellness Policy and resources. The assessment can be found here: LWP Assessment Tool (2016-17) The results of that assessment can be found here: D6 Local Wellness Policy Assessment Results 2016-2017. The district Student Wellness Committee decided that schools will be asked to complete this personalized assessment every other year (next administration in 2018-2019 school year).
In the 2019-2020 school year, all D6 schools (except some charters) again completed the statewide Smart Source assessment. The LWP section results of that assessment can be viewed HERE. The next administration of Smart Source will take place in the 2020-21 school year.
