Wellness Policy

Updated on Wed, 07/10/2019 - 10:11am

We've updated our District Wellness Policy!

In 2016 the USDA Food and Nutrition Services finalized regulations and guidelines for wellness policies which required districts to begin developing a revised policy. Adams 12 Five Star Schools has since updated the policy to include nutrition standards related to marketing, and foods offered (not sold) to students, as well as a description of public involvement, public updates, policy leadership, and evaluation. To view the revised policy click here

Adams 12 Five Star Schools uses Smart Source to assess compliance with the wellness policy. View our 2017-2018 Smart Source assessment here.

Do you have questions regarding the District Wellness Policy or would like to provide input on the content of the policy? Please contact Ashley Burke, Nutrition Supervisor.
