Providence Public Schools Health and Wellness Policy
A school district’s goals and guidelines for health and wellness of the entire school community
A healthy learning environment is one in which good nutrition is available, students engage in regular physical activity, physical and health education are regarded as essential to the core educational program, social and emotional wellness are promoted and actively modeled, and students and staff learn and practice positive lifestyle behaviors. This policy outlines Providence Public School District’s goals and expectations relative to wellness for the entire school community by establishing guidelines around nutrition, physical activity, and health education, while also ensuring compliance with state and federal school wellness mandates. Notably, thoughtfully-designed green schoolyards are key to addressing disparities in access to green space and connecting people to health benefits of nature.
