It is important to regularly conduct an assessment of a staff wellness program because it can identify the benefits or weaknesses of a program and assist with identifying new interventions.
One resource for measuring staff wellness programs is the School Health Index. It is a self-assessment tool used for identifying strengths and weaknesses and for planning improvements. It should not be used for evaluating staff.
