Academy School District 20 promotes healthy schools by supporting student wellness, good nutrition and regular physical activity as part of the total learning environment and encouraging school health teams in every building.  Improved health optimizes student performance potential, as children who eat well-balanced meals and are active are better prepared to learn.  Research links healthy eating and physical activity with improved academic performance and classroom behavior.
 
This committee is made up of a wide variety of stakeholders – principals, nurses, support staff and parents and the activities/professional development is provided through a variety of grants and school funds.
