Why have a school wellness policy? Policies help to establish boundaries for acceptable behavior and guidelines for best practices in certain situations. They offer clear communication to your students, teachers and employees as to how you expect them to act. Policies also contribute to the overall culture of the school, because they instill norms and values. But remember, having a policy in place is only valuable if you make sure it is properly implemented, communicated and monitored.
