LSWP Triennial Assessment Summary

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA), which oversees the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in public schools, requires a triennial assessment of our Local School Wellness Policy.  The Groton Public Schools’ (GPS) wellness policy (P 6142.101 / Wellness Score Card / Wellness Summary Assessment) can be found on our Policy Website and was developed to support student and staff health and well-being.

Our Wellness Committee, composed of stakeholders in the Groton community, has performed an assessment of our policy, using the WellSAT, which is a quantitative assessment tool developed by the University of Connecticut’s Rudd Center for Food Policy and Obesity.  The goal of the assessment is to compare Groton’s policy to a model policy, identifying our strengths, our areas for growth and our plans to improve our wellness policy.  

The evaluation examines these components of our policy: 

   Nutrition Education

   Standards for USDA Child Nutrition Programs and School Meals

   Nutrition Standards for Competitive and Other Foods and Beverages

   Physical Education and Physical Activity

   Wellness Promotion and Marketing

   Implementation, Evaluation and Communication
