The Northmont City School District recognizes that good nutrition and regular physical activity affect the health and well-being of the District's students. Research suggests that there is a positive correlation between a student's health and well-being and his/her ability to learn. 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.

Schools alone, however, cannot develop in students healthy behaviors and habits with regard to eating and exercise. It is necessary for staff, parents and the public at large to be involved in a community-wide effort to promote, support, and model such healthy behaviors and habits.

The district Wellness Committee sets goals for Nutrition Education and Promotion, Physical Activity, and Other School-Based Activities in an effort to enable students to establish good health and nutrition habits. The District­wide Wellness Committee meets at least four (4) times per year and includes parents, students, educational staff, mental health and social services staff, school health professionals, members of the public, and school administrators to oversee development, implementation, evaluation and periodic update of this policy.
