Wellness Policy (read the latest Wellness Policy here)
Torrance Unified School District is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children’s health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity. The Wellness Policy Committee met in 2015 to revise and update the existing Wellness Policy. The committee included a variety of District staff and other interested community members.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
The overarching goal of the TUSD Wellness Policy is to promote health and wellness, and to convey positive, consistent messages to all District students in accordance with current law. We want to support our students and enable them to achieve more by learning healthy behaviors that will benefit them for the rest of their lives.
Key Areas of Wellness
The Wellness Policy focuses on three keys areas:
- School health, safety and environment
- Physical activity and physical education
