Madison Metropolitan School District

School Wellness

All students and staff are and feel healthy, safe, supported, engaged, and challenged.

MMSD recognizes that physical, social, and emotional health are linked to academic achievement and college, career, and community readiness. Students learn better in healthy schools with healthy employees.

We believe that it is our responsibility to create learning environments that foster health and well-being for all students and employees.

NEW! Superintendent’s Wellness Advisory

As we work to create healthier and safer schools for students and staff in MMSD and continue to implement the district’s Wellness Policy, we are forming a new Superintendent’s Wellness Advisory. This merges the former District Wellness Advisory Council (DWAC) and advances the Board of Education Safety and Wellness Ad Hoc Committee’s top recommendation of a Superintendent’s Advisory Panel. 

Membership on the Advisory will include a one-year commitment to four meetings spread over the school year calendar. The Advisory will center youth voice and will include stakeholder participation including but not limited to students, families, staff, administrators, school board members, community organizations, and the general public. Intentional efforts will be made to ensure the Advisory represents the diverse identities within our school community. Applications were due Nov. 2.

For more information, please read the October 2, 2023 memo to the Board of Education.
