Wellness Policy Information

Oregon Trail School District

Wellness Policy

The Oregon Trail School District Wellness Policy was developed in response to federal legislation which mandated that each school district participating in the USDA funded school meals program “establish a local school wellness policy”. The legislation required that the policy set goals in the following four different areas and to have a plan for measuring policy implementation.

  • Nutrition Education
  • Physical Activity
  • Nutrition Guidelines for all foods sold on campus during the school day
  • Other school-based activities designed to promote student wellness
