Health and Wellness
Implementation and Assessment
In order to strengthen local school wellness policies and their implementation, school districts are required to periodically assess the extent to which their wellness policy compares to model local school wellness policies, the progress made in attaining the goals of their wellness policy, and the extent to which schools in the district are in compliance with their local wellness policy. Results of this assessment must be available to the public. In addition, each district must designate one or more school officials, as appropriate, to ensure that each school complies with the policy. The links below provide materials developed by state and national authorities to support effective school wellness policy implementation and assessment.
