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.
While student health and wellness are of primary importance, the Wellness Council also promotes staff health and wellness. A healthy staff can better teach and meet the needs of their students. A variety of staff wellness opportunities are organized throughout the year to encourage and enhance staff health.
The vision of the Wellness Council 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.
