Wellness Committee

Wellness Committee
The Wellness Committee meets once each semester.
Per this policy, the Superintendent provides an annual report to the School Board on compliance at each school.  
Every three years, the Wellness Committee conducts a review of this policy, how successfully it is being implemented across the District, and considers what changes may need to be made to the policy.  This tri-annual assessment is presented to the School Board and then posted here for public access.  (See below.)
Any questions regarding the Wellness Committee should be directed to Committee Chairperson Mrs. Melissa Grantz at (724) 352-1700, ext. 5610 or via email at [email protected] Community Members are welcome to participate.  Please contact Mrs. Grantz to become a member.
