District Wellness Council

The district Wellness Council assists in implementing the district’s wellness policies and serves as a resource to schools to develop their own wellness initiatives.

The council's members are concerned parents and professionals who believe that children’s health and health habits affect their capacity to learn and achieve academic and personal success now and in the future. Council members include representatives from the district office, schools, and the community at large.  

The vision of the Wellness Council, which meets quarterly, is that families and the Corvallis community will value and support the central role that schools play in promoting children’s health. In support of this vision, the council seeks to create and promote opportunities for student and staff wellness through the district’s educational and food services programs and activities.
