The wellness committee reviews district policies governing nutrition and physical fitness. The policies and associated procedures highlight goals to create an environment that promotes student health and wellness. The wellness committee and district leadership are responsible for assessing how well schools are doing at reaching the goals. Districts that participate in the National School Lunch Program are required to form wellness committees for this purpose. For further information about wellness committees, click here to see the USDA's Summary of the Final Rule implementing wellness policies under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
