    STUDENT NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

    The vision of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough School Board is to create a culture and environment of wellness among our district staff and students. Therefore, the Superintendent, or designee, will implement administrative regulations that promote and protect health, wellbeing, and the ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.

    Furthermore, the Superintendent, or designee, shall adopt administrative regulations necessary only to ensure district compliance with the minimum requirements of the National School Lunch Act and all other laws and regulations regarding student nutrition and physical activity that are mandatory, or requisite for district participation in the National School Lunch Program.
