Wellness At Hays
The goal of Hays CISD is to promote school health policies, procedures, and programs that improve health behaviors. Hays CISD operates from the premise that healthy children are more capable of learning and, thus, are better students. The logical extension is that better students help create healthy communities. Hays CISD emphasizes the connection between recommended health practices, academic achievement, and lifelong healthy behaviors.
