Promote Health and Resiliency Advisory Committee Charter


Mission:

We are a learning community dedicated to promoting Health and Resiliency for all students and staff in LOSD.

Vision:

We inspire students to be critical thinkers who are empowered to contribute positively in a
complex world.

Background:

On February 7, 2022, the Lake Oswego School Board issued a resolution recognizing Promote Health and Resiliency to be a new school board advisory committee in line with its strategic plan priorities. The committee’s perspectives and work will be critical to understanding the district’s efforts and provide deeper insight into the social, emotional and physical health of students and employees.

Committee Charge:

The Committee will provide a platform for the community to come together to review district systems that prioritize counseling to support social-emotional and mental health and extend resources to parents/guardians and the community..

Information to Consider
1. Programs that support the whole child in counseling, teaching practices, interventions and relationships between staff and students.
2. Current structures to support wellbeing, model and provide healthy nutrition, and encourage an active lifestyle.
3. Health metrics to ensure oversight and accountability toward eliminating inequities in health outcomes.
