Formed in 2014 in response to the needs of local school districts, the Office of Student Wellness is committed to the development of the whole child. We work, in collaboration with local communities, school districts, and individuals, to support students as they become fully productive members of society. Our approach allows us to affect real, meaningful change in the lives of all Granite Staters while remaining fiscally responsible, culturally competent, and family and youth driven. You will find more information on our work and approach below.
Student wellness is the recognition by schools, districts, and educational professionals that there are many factors that impact a student’s academic attainment. It is an approach that focuses on supporting the whole child. The dimensions of wellness include: Emotional, Personal, Intellectual, Physical, Environmental, Occupational, and Social factors.
