Wellness Committee Updates
Sponsors participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) are required to have a Local School Wellness Policy in place and conduct a triennial assessment.
The USDA Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) finalized regulations found at 7 CFR 210.31 to create a framework and guidelines for written wellness policies established by sponsors. The final rule required sponsors to begin developing revised local school wellness policies during the 2016-2017 school year. The revised policy was to be in place by June 30, 2017.
Based on the July 1, 2017 required implementation of the local school wellness policy regulations, the first triennial assessments were originally due on June 30, 2020, however, USDA released an initial waiver extending the deadline to June 30, 2021. An additional extension was granted via COVID-19: Child Nutrition Response #98 further delaying the deadline to June 30, 2022.
Sponsors are required at least once every three years, to assess compliance with the policy and make the assessment results available to the public.
On May 24, 2022 the Wellness Committee, composed of district school staff, parents and community members met to review and approve the 2022 Willamina School District Local Wellness Policy Triennial Assessment.
