Local Wellness Committee

In accordance with new Federal Regulations, West Deptford School District established a Local School Wellness Policy in 2017. A committee was formed, comprised of a cross-representation of School Administrators, Nurses, Physical Education Teachers, Guidance Counselors, Teachers, Aides and Parents who met several times throughout the 17-18 school year to ensure our compliance with this policy, to discuss topics related to wellness and to evaluate where we currently stand as a district in regards to overall wellness.

Specific goals were discussed for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school-based activities that promote student wellness. A copy of the District Wellness Policy, the committee's final report, as well as our yearly assessment and our District Wellness Report Card can be found below.
