Wellness Advisory Committee Meetings
School Wellness Committees
Each year, all Prince William County Public Schools form Wellness Committees comprised of staff and community members. One member from each school is then selected to meet with the Wellness Advisory Committee (WAC). The Wellness Advisory Committee includes members from our community such as the Prince William Health Partnership. The meeting dates for the 2014.15 school year are Thursday, October 2, 2014, Thursday, January 15, 2015, and Thursday, April 9, 2015.
Prince William County Wellness Plan
In June of 2006 the PWCS School Board approved the Wellness policy and wellness plan in response to a federal requirement that is based on the rising concern of obesity and student wellness. The content of the Wellness Plan includes nutrition and physical activity guidelines, nutrition education goals, and staff wellness initiatives. All schools and central departments will be working towards the continued sustainment of this plan.
