Grand Ledge Public Schools
Board of Education
Category IX: Students
As required by law, the Board of Education establishes the following student wellness policy for the Grand Ledge Public School District.
The Board recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well being of the District’s students. Furthermore, research concludes that there is a positive correlation between a student’s health and well-being and his / her ability to learn. Moreover, schools can play an important role in the developmental process by which students establish their health and nutrition habits by providing nutritious meals and snacks through the schools’ meal programs, by supporting the development of good eating habits, and by promoting increased physical activity both in and out of school.
The Board, however, believes this effort to support the students’ development of healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise cannot be accomplished by the schools alone. It will be necessary for not only the staff, but also parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support and model such health behaviors and habits.
