Health and Wellness Call to Action: Next Steps

In January 2011, CVESD staff presented the results of a landmark Height & Weight Surveillance Project that measured more than 25,000 students. The results revealed that almost 40% of K-6th grade students are at an unhealthy weight (overweight and/or obese) for their age and gender. In October 2011, CVESD staff presented “Growing Healthy Children: Next Steps” at the District Advisory Council/District English Learner Advisory Committee meeting. The hour-long presentation addressed and modeled systemic “next steps” and how they will be implemented at the district, school and/or classroom levels. View the Powerpoint-PDF to see our plan of action. Our efforts have attracted the support of parents, community, public health and city leaders. There has also been extensive media coverage.  

  • Update: KPBS News published its latest in a series of reports about the District’s efforts to improve student health and wellness. View the website story or hear audio of the radio broadcast that aired in April 2012.
