CUSD Nutrition Services

School wellness policies are evaluated based on the degree to which they address 67 policy items. These items are categorized into six sections:

1. Nutrition Education

2. Standards for USDA Child Nutrition Programs and School Meals

3. Nutrition Standards for Competitive and Other Foods and Beverages

4. Physical Education and Activity

5. Wellness Promotion and Marketing

6. Implementation, Evaluation and Communication

Each policy is rate "0-not mentioned, "1-weak statement," "2-meets or exceeds expectations"

The WellSAT will give you two scores: a comprehensiveness score, which reflects the extent to which recommended content areas are covered in the policy; and a strength score, which describes how strongly the content is stated. Both scores range from 0-100, with lower scores indicating less content and weaker language, and higher scores indicating more content and use of specific and directive language. This wellness assessment was tested in 2018 in a sample of 50 school districts around the country and the average comprehensiveness score was 54 and the average strength score was 33. Our district received a comprehensive score of 58 and a strength score of 48. As we have some areas of improvement, we are definitely on the right track to ensuring our district is doing it's part to keep our students and staff healthy.
