wellness in District 65
As part of the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, school districts that participate in the National School Lunch and/or School Breakfast Program are required to have a local wellness policy that promotes student health and addresses concerns about childhood obesity. In 2019, the School Board approved an updated wellness policy (School Board Policy 6:50
) that is intended to create a healthier school environment via improved nutrition education, healthier food services, and improved physical activity offerings.
The Wellness Council is responsible for promoting health and wellness across District 65. All educators, support staff members, administrators, parents/caregivers, and community members wanting to work together to build something great for our school community are invited to participate! Meeting dates are as follows:
September 17, 2019
November 19, 2019
January 21, 2020
March 17, 2020
May 19, 2020
All meetings will be held at the JEH Education Center (1500 McDaniel Avenue, Evanston) from 4-5pm.
