Green River District Health Department 2018 Community Health Assessment


The health and safety of students and staff are of the highest priority in all Union County School decisions. Our district is committed to providing a school environment that promotes and protects student health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. In 2016 the district developed a strategic plan consisting of three main pillars; College Success, Life Success and Career Success, with the central pillar comprised of goals related to developing the whole student and aligning with the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child or WSCC model of the CDC.


In addition to local school wellness committees and local school wellness policies, Union County Schools has a District-wide Coordinated School Health (CSH) Council. The council is responsible for annual review and update of the District Wellness Policy, establishment and support of the local school wellness committees, enforcement of district wellness policy and development/integration of Coordinated School Health goals into the Comprehensive District Improvement Plan.


The CSH Committee is continuing to evaluate the district wellness policy at this time and closely following the policy guidelines and recommendations from KDE SHAPE, ESSA, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, Action for Healthy Kids, and KSBA.

Introduction to the Local
School Wellness Policy
The Local School Wellness Policy (LSWP) requirement was established by the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, and further strengthened by the final ruling of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) in August 2016. It requires each local education agency (LEA) participating in the National School Lunch Program and/or School Breakfast Program to develop a local school district wellness policy that promotes the health of students and addresses the growing problem of childhood obesity.
