Wellness Policy   The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 established final rule regarding Local Wellness Policies for all school districts that participate in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Program.The intent is to meet expanded requirements that strengthen the ability of a school district to create a school nutrition environment that promotes student health, well-being, and the ability to learn.
Policy: Aldine ISD adopted Board Policy in September 2016 to meet compliance with statutory requirements. 
Plan: The School Health Advisory Council (SHAC) comprised of parents, students, Child Nutrition Services, physical education teachers, school health professionals, Board members, district and campus administrators and members of the public developed a Wellness Plan according to adopted Wellness Policy goals. 
Goals of the plan include Nutrition Guidelines, Nutrition Promotion and Education, Physical Activity, and School-Based Activities.  Each school campus must implement all applicable areas of the Local Wellness Plan and document activities through an annual Scorecard.

Progress and Updates: Progress toward meeting the goals and compliance of the policy and plan will be published annually.  A triennial assessment will be conducted for needed updates to the policy and plan and made available for public view. 

Triennial Assessment Results: A triennial assessment of the current Wellness Policy and Plan was conducted on May 20, 2019.  The assessment was conducted by a group of individuals consisting of district administration, teachers, nurses, parents, community members, and Child Nutrition personnel. Each area of the Wellness Policy and Plan was reviewed for compliance, evidence based strategies and progress in attaining goals.
 A Wellness Scorecard is used annually for schools to document progress of specific goals, strategies and progress.  Each school is required to submit a completed scorecard by June 1 of each year. 

The SHAC committee meeting is on the following dates: Nov. 7th, 2018, Feb. 5th, 2020, and April 24th, 2020.
