What are the Requirements of the School Wellness Policy?

Each local education agency must designate one or more school official to ensure that each school within the agency complies with the local wellness policy.

At a minimum, a local school wellness policy must:

  • Include goals for nutrition promotion and education, physical activity, and other school-based activities that promote student wellness
  • Include nutrition guidelines to promote student health and reduce childhood obesity for all foods available in each school district
  • Permit parents, students, representatives of the school food authority, teachers of physical education, school health professionals, the school board, school administrators, and the general public to participate in the development, implementation, and review and update of the local wellness policy
  • Inform and update the public (including parents, students, and others in the community) about the content and implementation of local wellness policies
  • Be measured periodically on the extent to which schools are in compliance with the local wellness policy, the extent to which the local education agency’s local wellness policy compares.
