    In an effort to recruit, employ, and retain the highest quality workforce, the School Board of Brevard County approved the development of the Wellness Program to benefit every employee in the District. 

    With the philosophy that a healthier workforce is a happier and more productive workforce, Brevard Public Schools offers many wellness opportunities where employees can achieve a greater state of health and well-being.  When all employees practice healthier habits, we become positive role models to our students and our community. 

    As an employee of Brevard Public Schools, you can take part in the many wellness programs/resources provided to help improve your overall well-being and quality of life.
