Employee Wellness

Published: 4/7/2020 11:11 AM
​Schools can provide opportunities for school staff members to improve their health status through activities such as health assessments, health education, and health-related fitness activities. These opportunities encourage staff members to pursue a healthy lifestyle that contributes to their improved health status, improved morale, and a greater personal commitment to the school's overall coordinated health program. This personal commitment often transfers into greater commitment to the health of students and creates positive role modeling. Health promotion activities have improved productivity, decreased absenteeism, and reduced health insurance costs.
 
​In Kentucky schools, we will promote healthy staffs. We will assure that assessment, education, and fitness activities are available for school faculty and staff. This will be designed to maintain and improve the health and well-being of school staff, who serve as role models for students.
