CCS Board of Education Student Wellness Policy 6140

  • CCSBoE Policy Code: 6140 Student Wellness

    The board recognizes that it is important for students to maintain their physical health and receive proper nutrition in order to take advantage of educational opportunities.  The board further recognizes that student wellness and proper nutrition are related to a student’s physical well-being, growth, development and readiness to learn.  The board is committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience.  As part of that commitment, the board directs the superintendent to oversee the development, implementation, and ongoing evaluation of this policy and other school system efforts to encourage students to be healthy and active, including compliance with the State Board of Education’s Healthy Active Children Policy SHLT-000, as further described in Section H, below.  The superintendent may designate a school system official to carry out this responsibility (“lead wellness official”).

    The superintendent or designee shall make the most current version of this policy available to members of the school community and the public by posting it on the school system website and/or by distributing it annually through other means reasonably intended to reach the school community and public.  In addition, the superintendent or designee shall provide a copy of this policy to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) when requested to do so.
