Wellness

The Broadalbin-Perth Central School District (the District) is committed to providing a school environment that enhances the learning and development of lifelong wellness practices and supports the overall health and wellness for all members of the school community.

The District’s Health and Wellness Committee shall endeavor to promote and protect students’ health, well-being and ability to learn by supporting opportunities to engage in healthy behaviors.  Additionally, the District’s Health and Wellness Committee will endeavor to provide opportunities for staff to engage in wellness behaviors that influence the health and wellness of students.

Individual schools within the District will create, strengthen, or work within existing committees to develop, implement, monitor, review and, as necessary, revise school health and wellness initiatives.

The District Wellness Committee will also be responsible for assessing current activities, programs, and policies available in the District, and providing mechanisms for implementation, evaluation, and revision of this policy. In so doing, the Wellness Committee will evaluate and make recommendations which reflect the specific needs of the District and its students.

The Superintendent will designate a District Wellness Coordinator to convene the District Wellness Committee in order to facilitate the development of, and any proposed updates to, the District’s wellness policy, and will also ensure the District’s compliance with this policy.
