The U.S. Department of Education has approved a new policy to encourage students to “be well ucc” and to be “well expression” in their education.
The new policy, titled “Becoming well Ucc,” will be implemented this fall at a cost of $1 million to the U.C.L.A. School District.
The policy is designed to support students who feel uncomfortable with their bodies or their identity, but to help them develop self-confidence, develop an awareness of their body’s functions and to foster healthy, self-directed interactions, according to a release from the UCCP.
The plan, which was approved by the UCCC in June, requires schools to have a well-designed, accessible, safe and supportive campus environment that “is designed to allow students to be well UCC,” said a statement from the school district.
The school district will have the ability to implement its own wellness plan for students, the statement said.
Students are expected to wear “health-conscious attire” and participate in physical activity, the UUCP said.
