The Alden Central School District is committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects children's health, well-being, and the ability to learn by fostering healthy eating and physical activity.
The District has established a wellness committee to develop the District's proposed local wellness policy, making such policy recommendations for review and adoption by the Board of Education. The District Wellness Committee includes, but is not limited to, representatives from each of the following groups:
c) Physical Education teachers;
d) School health professionals;
e) The District's food service program;
f) The School Board;
g) School administrators; and
h) Members of the public.
The District has established a Wellness Policy Committee. This committee reviews the Wellness Policy, collaborates with the district to implement the policy and makes policy recommendations for review and adoption by the Board of Education.
The District Wellness Committee will also be responsible for assessing current activities, programs and policies available in the District, and providing mechanisms for implementation, evaluation, and revision of the policy. In so doing, the Wellness Committee will evaluate and make recommendations that reflect the specific needs of the District and its students.
