Health Education Mission Statement
The mission of the South Seneca Health Education Program is to build comprehensive health knowledge and skills in developmentally appropriate ways in grades 6-12, in an effort to prepare and empower students to value and engage in life-long healthy lifestyles which will allow them to reach their fullest potential and assure that they become productive, responsible citizens.
The learning standards for this curriculum are based on the New York State Standards for Health and Physical Education and allow students to have multiple opportunities to learn through a planned and sequential instructional program. The Health Education Program is viewed as an integral part of a student’s academic learning and is a valuable component of a well-rounded education.
The goal is to reduce risk behaviors and increase healthy habits which will promote strong bonds between students and their families, schools, and community. This will be achieved through the students’ increased health literacy, the development of healthy self-management skills, and through the advocacy of their healthy behaviors and practices.
