Madison Metropolitan School District

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, a new Superintendent’s Wellness Advisory was formed earlier in the 2023-2024 school year. 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. 

Purpose

  • Bring forth recommendations to the superintendent and the BOE based on the perspectives and experiences of various stakeholders to create safer and healthier schools

  • Establish a two-way communication system to collect input from stakeholders on an ongoing basis

  • Participate in the development, implementation, review, and update of the Board Wellness Policy 
     

Membership

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