Professional development has a new spin for Rumson Schools. As part of its yearly goals,which include accelerated math instruction and student wellness, the district has committed to support the staff’s physical, mental, emotional and occupational well-being.

Through these learning opportunities, it is both WEforum’s and the district’s intent to strengthen the health of the school community and beyond by empowering the staff to take charge of their health choices and to inspire a wellness mindset among the1,000+ students whose lives they touch daily.
