AASD Annual Wellness Report 2018-19
Posted on 02/17/2020
Per our School Wellness Policy, each school site will need to complete an assessment tool (Action for Healthy Kids) based on the School Health Index (SHI). The purpose of the assessment is for schools to identify the strengths and weaknesses of their health and safety policies and programs, and develop action plans for improving student health.

The Action for Healthy Kids (AFHK) Wellness Assessment examined eight aspects of the school wellness environment:

1. School Wellness Environment
2. School Meals
3. Other School Food
4. Health Education
5. Physical Education
6. Physical Activity
7. Staff Involvement
8. Family and Community Involvement

The report compared AFHK schools in the district and state, and identified opportunities for growth. The SHI score indicates if a school provides an environment where students are healthy, active and ready to learn.

Promoting healthy and safe behaviors among students provides young people with the knowledge and skills needed to become healthy and productive adults. Improving student health and safety can increase students’ capacity to learn, reduce absenteeism and improve physical fitness and mental alertness.

AASD’s school health index rating is excellent. AASD scored excellent in seven of eight SHI categories. The district exceeds the state average in all eight SHI categories.
