The NJSBA Health and Wellness Student Achievement Task Force is seeking volunteers to assist in addressing the concerns of student well-being in New Jersey’s public schools.

The next meeting will be held at NJSBA headquarters at 413 West State St., Trenton, on Wednesday, Jan 21 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The task force will determine the ways in which health and wellness policies, practices, and processes impact student achievement, and will develop recommendations for consideration by local boards of education.

The group includes a broad range of stakeholders from all facets of school and community life; representatives from the National School Boards Association are also serving on the task force.

The task force’s findings and recommendations will provide a roadmap for state school boards associations around the country to follow, and share with their local members.

For more information on the scope of the group’s research contact Sharon Seyler, NJSBA legislative advocate, by email or at (609) 278-5282.
