NYS’ 2.6M Students Deserve Healthy Schools Now! Support A7607!
Ask Your Assemblymember: Please Support A7607
Exciting news! We are a step closer to giving ALL NYS students the opportunity to be healthier and achieve in school. A new Assembly bill, A7607, will establish a model school wellness policy to help school districts address students’ physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
Our students face daunting health challenges that impact their ability to learn and develop. Across the state, school districts need resources and support to strengthen and implement their wellness policies. Our state government must take a leadership role in prioritizing school wellness.
A7607 would put New York at the forefront of supporting student health and well-being.
It will create a model school wellness policy based on best practices and local priorities, giving school districts statewide a framework to connect the dots for our students’ physical, mental, and emotional health and well-being.
Providing nutritious food, physical activity, mental health care, and supportive climates add up to kids who can learn better and succeed in the future. Schools may be the most stable, safe environments that many children know. It is vital that every school – especially those that struggle at the intersection of race and poverty – is equipped to tackle these issues.
