School Wellness Committees

Each year, all Prince William County Public Schools form Wellness Committees comprised of staff and community members. One member from each school is then selected to meet with the Wellness Advisory Committee (WAC). The Wellness Advisory Committee includes members from our community such as the Prince William Health Partnership.

Prince William County Wellness Plan

Montage of words including schools, division, physical, nutrition.

In June of 2006 the PWCS School Board approved the Wellness policy and wellness plan in response to a federal requirement that is based on the rising concern of obesity and student wellness. The content of the Wellness Plan includes nutrition and physical activity guidelines, nutrition education goals, and staff wellness initiatives. All schools and central departments will be working towards the continued sustainment of this plan.

As described in the Wellness Plan, each school has a Wellness Committee that provides resources and leadership in creating a healthier school and community. The focus of this Committee is to enhance student, staff, and community awareness to support making healthy lifestyles decisions. We encourage parents and other community members to become involved and ask about the plans for your school's Wellness Committee.
