Why a Wellness Policy:

Our Wellness Policy:

Birmingham recognizes the significant relationship between student health and academic achievement. BCCHS is committed to the overall wellness of our students and our community. It is our goal to promote student health, prevent childhood obesity, and combat problems associated with poor nutrition and physical inactivity. BCCHS has developed a Wellness Policy that is focused on improving the health of students. The policy was developed by the Wellness Committee which includes representatives of all stakeholder groups.
California Healthy Kids Survey:
Annually, Birmingham administers the California Healthy Kids Survey (CHKS) to students. CHKS is a comprehensive data system to assess the needs of the whole child and guide efforts by schools, communities, and families to ensure all youth thrive. It is the largest statewide student survey of resiliency, protective factors, risk behaviors, and school climate in the nation. For link to most recent survey results: Click here.
