CORONADO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT

Well • ness - noun

Definition: Physical well-being, especially when maintained or achieved through good nutrition and regular exercise.

Coronado Unified School District is dedicated to the health and well being of each and every student.  We can not do it alone, and with your help we will be successful in the important development of each student's mind and body. The District plays a critical role in curbing the epidemic of childhood health issues like obesity, heart disease, and Type II diabetes which are directly associated with poor nutrition and inactivity. Please see our links below for information on healthy snacks, fundraising.

In 2004, Congress passed a law requiring every school district that uses federal dollars for school breakfast or lunch to create a local wellness policy by the start of the 2006-07 school year. The District’s local wellness policy applies to every school in the District. The policy will assist schools in improving the health of students by promoting physical activity and nutritious food.

Wellness Assessment 2019-20: WellSAT 3.0 

School wellness policies are evaluated based on the degree to which they address 67 policy items. These items are categorized into six sections:

1. Nutrition Education

2. Standards for USDA Child Nutrition Programs and School Meals

3. Nutrition Standards for Competitive and Other Foods and Beverages

4. Physical Education and Activity

5. Wellness Promotion and Marketing

6. Implementation, Evaluation and Communication

Each policy is rate "0-not mentioned, "1-weak statement," "2-meets or exceeds expectations"

The WellSAT will give you two scores: a comprehensiveness score, which reflects the extent to which recommended content areas are covered in the policy; and a strength score, which describes how strongly the content is stated. Both scores range from 0-100, with lower scores indicating less content and weaker language, and higher scores indicating more content and use of specific and directive language. This wellness assessment was tested in 2018 in a sample of 50 school districts around the country and the average comprehensiveness score was 54 and the average strength score was 33. Our district received a comprehensive score of 58 and a strength score of 48. As we have some areas of improvement, we are definitely on the right track to ensuring our district is doing it's part to keep our students and staff healthy. See the link below for a more detailed look of the assessment.
