October 4, 2013District 200 continues to work on initiatives for our students and staff members that promote healthy living. The District is fortunate to have a partnership with the McHenry County Department of Health that helps fund health programs in all schools through the We Choose Health Grant. After the district received the grant, each school completed a school health index that was used to create a plan for how the funds would be spent.
