WELLNESS POLICY

The Jeffco Board of Education in 2017 adopted a new federally-required Local Wellness Policy. The policy makes requirements for schools in the areas of nutrition, physical activity, health education, tobacco, and social-emotional wellness.

We would love hear from you regarding questions. We also have resources for further professional development and other community resources.
