The Knoch School District recognizes that student wellness and proper nutrition are related to students' physical well-being, growth, development, and readiness to learn. The Board is committed to providing a school environment that promotes student wellness, proper nutrition, nutrition education and promotion, and regular physical activity as part of the total learning experience. In a healthy school environment, students will learn about and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices that can improve student achievement.
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. Kim Fitzgerald at (724) 352-1700, ext. 3610 or via email at [email protected]. Community Members are welcome to participate. Please contact Mrs. Fitzgerald to become a member.
