The mission of the Somerset County Public Schools Staff Wellness Committee is to improve the physical, mental, and financial health of all SCPS employees by establishing and maintaining a work environment that encourages a lifelong commitment to a healthy lifestyle and a positive well-being.
The Wellness Committee is comprised of members from each location throughout the district. Selected by the school principal or designee, the members work to review the county-wide wellness program, identifying new ways to improve and enrich the program. The members also sit on their respective location-based wellness committees. If you are interested in being a member of the Staff Wellness Committee see your school administrator.
