The School Wellness Checklist© (SWC) is an implementation tool that provides schools participating in the MUSC BCCW School-based Wellness Initiative with evidence-based strategies and resources to assist them in making the policy, systems, and environmental changes required to build and sustain a culture of wellness. The SWC offers a variety of evidence-based strategies in seven categories that schools can choose from to best meet the needs of their students and staff. In order for participating schools to earn a Wellness Award, they must implement at least one item from each category. By implementing a variety of strategies, wellness is incorporated into all areas of a school, helping to create a culture of wellness. The categories are: Getting Started, Nutrition, Physical Activity, Social-Emotional Learning, Wellness Culture, Staff Wellness and Sustainability.
