Las Lomitas Elementary School District

Inclusive, Engaging, Inspiring
Health Team and Framework

Health Team and Framework

The health and wellness team's role, partly funded by the Sequoia HealthCare District’s Healthy Schools Initiative, is to address our students' and staff's social, emotional, and physical health. Positions include a wellness coordinator, food service specialist, nurses, counselors, psychologists, and behaviorists, as well as the Physical Education departments and partner agencies like Adolescent Counseling Services (ACS). Together, they are driven by the Coordinated School Health and Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child models, which emphasize the importance of integrating health across all aspects of learning - of acquiring knowledge, practicing skills, and changing behaviors at school, home, and in the community.

Data Collection

Data Collection

To help understand our students' social, emotional, mental, and physical health needs and examine trends over time, two primary health-related surveys are administered to students at La Entrada and Las Lomitas.

California Healthy Kids Survey
The California Healthy Kids survey is administered to students in grades 5 and 7 bi-annually in the fall.  Questions include topics such as sleep hygiene, bullying, substance use, and physical activity. Responses are anonymous and confidential yet provide critical insight into school climate, student perceptions and beliefs, and student behavior.  Aggregate data is provided to the school district in the spring, and results inform classroom lessons and program planning.

Panorama Survey
The Panorama survey is administered annually to students in grades 3-8 and to teachers of students in grades K-2. Questions address student belonging, social-emotional indicators, and school climate.  Results inform classroom lessons and school- or district-wide program planning.
