All RI school districts are required by federal and state law to adopt a Local Wellness Policy to address comprehensive nutrition and physical activity in the school setting. Individual schools must implement the provisions of the Wellness Policy and be measured on the extent to which they are in compliance so the district can report progress to the school community, as required.

The purpose of this checklist is to assist your school in identifying areas where you have been successful in achieving your school wellness goals and complying with your district policy as well as to help identify priority areas where you can focus your future efforts.

The standards for comparison have been adapted from USDA regulations, RI General Laws and regulations, and national model policy language and exemplary practice provisions. You will need to refer to your own District Wellness Policy for provisions specific to your school district.

This checklist can be completed by any person(s) at the school level who is familiar with school wellness curriculum, activities, practices and programs. It is likely that no one person will be able to accurately address all content areas so it is recommended that other knowledgeable school personnel (Principal, Food Service staff, PE teacher, Health teacher, School Nurse, PTO leader, etc.) be asked to contribute information and answers.
