STUDENT HEALTH

The NJDOE recognizes that healthy students are better learners. The department supports school health policies and practices that address the physical, social, and emotional needs of students.  Recognizing that education cannot achieve this alone, the department works with other state agencies to support the implementation of statutes and regulations designed to promote student and staff wellness.  In collaboration with school health experts, the department identifies promising practices and research to support school health programs
