Public and Community Involvement

  • The expanded scope of public involvement in local wellness policy authorizes and holds the expectation that students, parents, representatives of the school food authority, teachers of physical education, school health professionals, the school board, school administrators, and the general public will participate in the development, implementation, and review and update of the local wellness policy. In addition, districts must inform and update the public (including parents, students, and others in the community) about the content and implementation of local wellness policies.  The links below provide important resources to increase local public and community involvement in the various aspects of school wellness policy.
