The Byram Hills School District believes that the academic success of our students is linked, in part, to proper nutrition, appropriate physical activity, and social-emotional wellness. To support this belief, the District seeks to promote student health and wellness through our health education and physical education curricula, our food services program, and our school practices.
The Health and Wellness Advisory Committee, chaired by the District Wellness Coordinator, will participate in the implementation and periodic review of the Wellness Policy. The Committee shall monitor and review the District’s wellness activities to determine the extent that schools are complying with this policy, how it compares to model wellness policies, the progress made toward attaining the goals District’s goals, and whether this policy is having a positive effect on increasing student wellness and decreasing childhood obesity in the District. Based on the results, this policy, and the specific objectives set to meet its goals, may be revised as needed. Any recommended changes will be included in the three-year assessment report to the Board of Education.
