Beach Cities Health District (BCHD) partners with elementary, middle and high schools in the Beach Cities to help keep health and wellness at the forefront of education. When schools have healthy environments, students thrive and are better prepared to learn.
School Wellness Councils
Advisory groups concerned with the health and well-being of students, teachers and staff. The councils set health priorities for the school year and collaborate with administrators, teachers, staff, students, parents and community members to create an environment that values health. BCHD is a partner with 21 School Wellness Councils in the Beach Cities. Social-emotional learning, employee wellness, parent education, physical activity and nutrition are just a few of the policies these councils oversee.
Alliance for a Healthier Generation
The goal of the Alliance for a Healthier Generation is to reduce the prevalence of childhood obesity and to empower children to develop lifelong healthy habits. In the 2017-18 school year, all Redondo Beach schools will participate in the Healthy Schools Program and may qualify to be among the healthiest schools in the nation.
