Federal Public Law (PL 108.265 Section 204) states that by the first day of the 2006 school year beginning after June 30, 2006 all schools must develop a local wellness policy that involves parents, students, a representative from the School Food Authority, school board, school administrators and the public. The Local Education Authority (LEA) will establish a plan for measuring implementation of the local wellness policy.
Local Wellness Policy – approved by the School Board on 3/13/19*.
The following changes were made:
Requirement to develop a Wellness Plan to implement the Wellness Policy.
Requirement to measure the implementation of the Wellness Plan at each campus each year.
Implementation results must be made available to the public.
Requirement to set standards for foods and beverages provided to students, but not sold, during the school day to students in the Wellness Plan.
