Wellness Policy

Cleveland County Schools is committed to providing school environments that promote a positive culture of health and wellness. We value the health and well-being of our students and staff. Our commitment is to reduce childhood obesity and enhance students’ ability to learn. We support healthy eating, physical activity, along with tobacco and drug free schools. Our mission is to help students develop lifelong physical activity and mental wellness practices.

Our District has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the health and wellness advisory council that includes teachers, parents, administrators, and the district nurse.

Team Nutrition is an initiative of the USDA Food and Nutrition Service to support the child nutrition programs through training and technical assistance for food service, nutrition education for children and their caregivers, and school and community support for healthy eating and physical activity. Cleveland County Schools proudly participates in Team Nutrition.

Sharing the Message of Wellness

One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
