School Wellness Promotion


Our Mission

The Marin County Office of Education shall promote awareness and interest
in wellness education, assist students and families in adopting nutrition and
physical activities that support life-long healthy behaviors of individual wellness, and engage in a process with community partners that builds sustainable wellness practices and programs.
This School Wellness Promotion section of the website provides important information and updates about federal and state school wellness policy requirements as well as evidence-based strategies and resources for teachers, staff, and administrators to engage with community partners in order to implement policies and programs that support sustainable healthy eating and activity environments in schools.


This project was supported by the Marin Countywide Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Initiative .
