Healthy Schools

Healthy Schools in Jeffco

Jeffco Public Schools' mission is to support school culture, policy and environments that promote healthy lifestyle choices, life skills and attitudes that benefit students, families and staff.

A Healthy School is focused on advancing the physical, social-emotional and mental health of students and staff in schools and upholding the District Wellness Policy. Each Healthy School identifies liaisons to set and monitor health and wellness goals for their school. They participate in Healthy Schools programming and are eligible for Healthy Schools funding to support their goals.
