Why a Wellness Policy?
Local Education Agencies (LEA’s) must conduct a comprehensive assessment of their Local School Wellness Policy (LSWP) a minimum of once every three years. The triennial assessment requirements are: 1) comparison to a model policy; 2) progress with the LSWP goals; and 3) compliance with the policy. LEA’s may choose their methods to meet the three requirements outlined above. LEA’s must also make the results of the triennial assessment available to the public.
Solana Beach School District Wellness Policy
Solana Beach School District has updated its Local School Wellness Policy (LSWP) and is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. The most recent triennial assessment occurred on March 30, 2021. The results of this triennial assessment were used when updating the 2021-2022 District Wellness Policy with approval of the District Wellness Committee on 4-15-2021 and approval of the Solana Beach School District Governing Board on 6-24-21. The District Wellness Committee members included administrators, credentialed and classified staff, Child Development Center staff, the district nurse, parents and community members.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
The overarching goal of the Solana Beach School District Wellness Policy is to promote health and wellness, and to convey positive, consistent messages to all District students in accordance with current law. We want to support our students and enable them to achieve more by learning healthy behaviors that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Key Areas of our Wellness Policy
Balance is essential for any District Wellness Policy. The Solana Beach School District Wellness Policy focuses on three keys areas:
- Physical activity and physical education
- Other school-based activities that are designed to promote student wellness.
