Dimensions of Wellness
What is Wellness?
Wellness Task Force
The Wellness Task Force is a voluntary committee that is ideally composed of parents/guardians, students, community partners, and classified and certificated staff. Meeting throughout the year, the committee works to coordinate district efforts to support student wellness through Health and Physical education, Child Nutrition Services, Psychological and Counseling Services, and a safe and healthy school environment. In addition, the Wellness Task Force strives to develop strategies for promoting staff wellness and for involving parents/guardians and the community in reinforcing students' understanding and appreciation of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and how it effects student academic performance.

Safe Routes to School
Safe Routes to School (SRTS) promotes walking, bicycling, and other forms of active transport to school. This program increases students’ physical activity, reduces vehicle traffic for safety, and reduces air pollution in the vicinity of schools.
Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC)
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child, or WSCC model, is CDC’s framework for addressing health in schools. The WSCC model is student-centered and emphasizes the role of the community in supporting the school, the connections between health and academic achievement and the importance of evidence-based school policies and practices. The Wellness Center uses this and other models to help guide programs to create a healthy environment for students.
