Elk Grove Unified School District (CA)
Elk Grove offer a robust wellness program, called “Your Health, Your Choice,” much of it in collaboration with health insurer Kaiser Permanente, but also open to non-Kaiser employees. “Champions” have been identified at the various school sites to promote the program to colleagues. Benefited employees who complete a basic set of wellness tasks and submit to the district a Wellness Certification Form receive a Wellness Rebate equal to 5% of the total premium costs of the district’s low cost health plan. Employees can log their fruits and vegetables through the online Mix It Up tool. At least one school has run its own “Biggest Loser” competition. The program includes an employee spotlight, vending machine changes, “recipe of the month,” and produce boxes.
