Local School Wellness Policy
Pursuant to federal law, the following parties had jointly developed the current wellness policy: Blue Ridge Unified School District #32 Board of Education members, Administrators, support staff members, teaching staff members, community members and parents.
Local School Wellness Policy Overview
- The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 required all districts to establish local school wellness policies by School Year 2006-2007.
- The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 expands the scope of wellness policies; brings in additional stakeholders in its development,
implementation and review; and requires public updates on the content and implementation of the wellness policies (Section 204). The intent is to strengthen local school wellness policies so they become useful tools in evaluating, establishing, and maintaining healthy school environments, and to provide transparency to the public on key areas that affect the nutrition environment in each school.
Please review the links below for more information on this process: Healthier Schools Tools, Section 204 and Wellness Policy Helpful Hints.
Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend the meeting for the assessment of the proposed wellness policy. Thank you and look forward to your participation!
