District versus Building Level Councils

  • District Level School Health/Wellness Council: Focus is on policy and the common mission of several district programs. Able to identify gaps and locate the district and community resources to address them.
  • School Level Wellness Council: Focus is on the needs of students, families and staff in a specific building. Able to implement programs and activities to meet these needs.
