Description

For any school participating in the federal Childhood Nutrition Programs, developing a school wellness policy is a must. However, how can schools and districts ensure their wellness policy meets best practice, has community buy-in, and is implemented comprehensively across the school campus and day?

Join this webinar to hear about model wellness policies, best practices, and resources available to Illinois schools/districts to support strong wellness policies. Also hear how wellness policies can support the implementation of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and new wellness policy evaluation tools.
