The San Diego County Office of Education (SDCOE) is
committed to encouraging healthy habits for its employees and the county’s
nearly 500,000 students.
As part of ongoing efforts toward this goal, the county Board
of Education passed a resolution June 11 to join the County of San Diego’s Live Well San Diego program.
“Who doesn’t want a healthy environment where people can
thrive and be successful,” said Tim Glover, assistant superintendent of Student
Services and Programs.
Live Well San Diego is a comprehensive, long-term health
initiative that seeks to improve health and wellness for residents throughout
SDCOE is proud to recognize the work the County of San Diego has
put into the effort over the last several years and looks forward to a
partnership that will help both organizations accomplish the same goals related
to health and quality of living.
SDCOE encourages health and wellbeing in a variety of ways,
including connecting students to nature through Outdoor Education,
facilitating the Total Wellness at Work program for employees, providing
programs to districts that promote physical and emotional health, and
implementing emergency preparedness programs.
“The San Diego County Office of Education recognizes the
link between student, staff and faculty well-being and ongoing learning and is
committed to providing a comprehensive environment that supports and promotes
learning, wellness, healthy eating, nutrition education, physical education, and
activity for our students, faculty and staff," the resolution reads.
