A $175,000 grant from RMC Health will enable Falcon School District 49 to expand health-related programs for students, staff and families. The money will fund a new project called Healthy Schools, Successful Students, as an expansion of a grand-funded project D-49 started four years ago.

The district will expand its wellness policy and adopt The Center for Disease Control and Prevention's coordinated school health model district-wide. The porgram focuses on counseling, nutrition services, health services and education, physical education, safe schools, community involvement and psychological and social services.

Studies have shown students who are healthy are more likely to learn than those who are unhealthy, so the goal is to not only increase positive healthy behaviors but alos improve student performance.
