Welcome to Healthy BRSSD!

INTRODUCING HEALTHY SCHOOLS INITIATIVE

In September 2010, BRSSD was one of 4 local school districts to receive a 3-year grant from the Sequoia Healthcare District to implement a Coordinated School Health Model.  The grant was extended through the 2015-16 school year.

Needs assessments were completed with staff and administrators at each school site to determine the health and wellness priorities.

Site-based staff wellness teams and a district-wide health advisory committee consisting of parents, teachers, administrators and community partners meet quarterly to discuss health and wellness issues on a site and district-wide level.
