Is your district committed to the belief that children and youth need to be well nourished and healthy to be ready to learn and to achieve their fullest potential? Is your district willing to work with students, parents, and the community to ensure that students have access to healthy food choices and that systems are in place to support their overall health? Joining SHAPE California will provide you with the support you need to achieve your vision. Commitment to this shared responsibility calls for a team approach for its successful implementation. School board members, administrators, parents, teachers, students, nurses, child nutrition staff, and support staff all are encouraged to join together with community partners in promoting a healthy school environment conducive to learning.
Your district may volunteer to join the SHAPE California network at any time by following the procedures listed below.
