In response to the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition and Women, Infants and Children Act, the Board directs the Superintendent/designee to develop and maintain a student wellness program.
The student wellness program:
1. includes goals for nutrition education, physical activity and other school-based activities designed to promote student wellness;
2. includes nutrition guidelines for all foods available in the District during the school day in order to promote student health and reduce childhood obesity;
3. provides assurance that District guidelines for reimbursable school meals are, at a minimum, equal to the guidelines issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and
4. establishes a plan of implementation and evaluation, including designating one or more persons within the District with the responsibility for ensuring that the District is compliant with Federal law.
Development of the student wellness program must be a collaborative effort between parents, students, food service workers, administrators, the Board and the public.
