Wellness Policy

The Chula Vista Elementary 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 diabetes which are directly associated with poor nutrition and inactivity.

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. (CVESD BP 5030) Our local wellness policy applies to every school in our district. The policy will assist schools in improving the health of students by promoting physical activity and nutritious food. At CVESD, a Wellness Committee consisting of principals, teachers, nurses, community organizations, parents, students, and school food service professionals, was created to assist and advise the district on health-related issues and ways to continually improve the wellness policy.
