District Policy

In June 2017, the Jeffco Board of Education adopted a new federally-required Local Wellness Policy. 

This policy impacts health and wellness for over 86,000 students in Jeffco Public Schools, with specific improvements to nutrition standards related to marketing, and foods offered (not sold) to students.
