J.22 Student and Staff Wellness - August 2008 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in November 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education recognizes that supporting student and staff wellness contributes to excellence in academic achievement through a quality, safe learning and working environment. The Board of Education is committed to providing healthy, safe school environments that promote the Coordinated School Health Model, which includes the following eight components: Nutrition, Physical Education & Activity, Family, School & Community Partnership, Health Education & Life Skills, Healthy & Safe Environment, Social & Emotional Well-Being, Health Services, and Staff Wellness.

A healthy, safe learning and working environment provides students with the skills, social support, and environmental reinforcement they need to adopt long-term, health-promoting behaviors that can improve student achievement.
