• wellness in District 65
     
    Health is Wealth picture 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.
