Balance is essential for any Wellness Policy. Key areas include:
The district wellness committee consists of a team from each school. The wellness committee shares resources and content and completes the annual wellness assessment in each school. Section 9A(b) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act (NSLA) (42 U.S.C. 1758b(b)) establishes requirements for local school wellness policies related to implementation, evaluation, and publicly reporting on progress of local school wellness policies. FNS regulations further require at 7 CFF 210.31(e)(2) that, at least once every three years, LEAs assess compliance with the local school wellness policy, and make assessment results available to the public.
The district wellness committee is comprised of representatives from each school in different positions within the building. The committee meets a few times each school year to share resources, discuss school initiatives, and complete the annual wellness assessment. Meeting information will be posted here when available.
