Bronco Wellness Coalition
Fort Bend ISD will graduate studetns who exhibit the attributes of the District's "Profile of a Graduate." (see below)
The FBISD Student Wellness Coalition exists to provide students a voice in identifying and prioritizing their own health and wellness needs. Together, they actively challenge their peers to improve and respect themselves by engaging in healthy life style choices that prepare themselves mentally, physically, and socially to pursue and attain futures beyond what they can imagine.
The Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) Model is our framework for addressing health in schools. This student-centered approach emphasizes the role of the community in supporting the school and the importance of evidence-based policies and practices. We want students to be involved with the decision making leading to positive changes.
What is a School Student-led Wellness Coalition?
