Wellness Plan

A comprehensive school district wellness policy is essential to the academic success and lifelong well being of students. The Maxwell Municipal School’s wellness policy is a living document that will allow the School Health Advisory Council to develop and implement wellness policies that will continue to create a learning environment that allows students to achieve their full academic potential and enjoy lifelong health, while meeting the Public Education Department Wellness Policy rule 6.12.6.6 NMAC and the requirements of Section 204 of Public Law 108-265–June 30, 2004–Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004.

The school district wellness policy rule adopted in New Mexico establishes that school districts create a wellness policy that includes areas related to the components of a coordinated school health approach to student health and well-being (see Appendix C School District Wellness Policy 6.12.6 NMAC). 

Appendix A provides a worksheet to assist the School Health Advisory Council in their continual reassessment and development of each of the components within the wellness policy.
