Los Alamitos USD:  Wellness Policy
School Wellness is a District-wide effort. We know that student health and wellness are integral components to student success in school. We conduct periodic monitoring of the implementation of the District's Wellness Policy and review findings and make adjustments to programs and services accordingly. At the beginning of each school year, school sites invite stakeholders to be participants in the Safety and Wellness Committee. Stakeholders are directed to speak with the site principal if they are interested in participating, and the site principals share the names of interested individuals with the Wellness administrators at the District Office. Safety and Wellness Committee Meetings are typically held three times per school year.

Dates of Recent Safety and Wellness Committee Meetings:

  • September 21, 2023
  • February 15, 2023
  • May 10, 2023

Dates of Future Safety and Wellness Committee Meetings:

  • September 27, 2023
  • TBD

There are a variety of indicators to measure the implementation and outcomes of our Wellness Policy. One such indicator is our District's performance on the California Physical Fitness Test (CPFT) administered to students in grades 5, 7, and 9. The most recent results for the CPFT are available from the 2018-2019 school year at the following link: 2018-2019 Los Al USD CPFT.
We periodically evaluate our local Wellness Policy against updated "Model Policies" as recommended by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The results of the self-evaluation drive a continuous process of identifying needs, developing goals, monitoring policy implementation, and measuring progress on key indicators of wellness (e.g., CPFT, student attendance, and graduation rates). Our most recent Wellness Policy Review was completed during the 2018-2019 school year using the Rudd Center's WellSAT2.0 indicator and is available here:
