    School Wellness Policy

    As required by law, the Board of Education establishes the following wellness policy for the Columbus School District as a part of a comprehensive wellness initiative. The Board recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Furthermore, research suggests that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. Moreover, schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools' meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school. Schools alone, however, cannot develop students’ healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise cannot be accomplished by schools alone. It will be necessary for not only the staff, but also parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support, and model such healthy behaviors and habits. The District sets the following goals in an effort to enable students to establish good health and nutrition choices to: 

    • promote nutrition education with the objective of improving students’ health and reducing childhood obesity; 
    • improve the health and well-being of our children, increase consumption of healthful foods during the school day, and create an environment that reinforces the development of healthy eating habits; 
    • promote nutrition guidelines, a healthy eating environment, child nutrition programs, and food safety and security on each school campus with the objective of promoting student health and reducing childhood obesity; 
    • provide opportunities for every student to develop the knowledge and skills for specific physical activities, maintain physical fitness, regularly participate in physical activity, and understand the short and long-term benefits of a physically active lifestyle;
    • promote the health and wellness of students and staff through other school-based activities.
