Four district schools received the highest National Healthy School Award, the Gold-level award, from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Twelve other district schools received Bronze- or Silver-level National Healthy School Awards.
Schools earned the distinction by successfully meeting a rigorous set of criteria for serving healthier meals and snacks, getting students moving more, offering high-quality physical and health education, and empowering school leaders to become healthy role models. Each recognized school participates in Healthier Generation’s landmark Healthy Schools Program—one of the nation’s largest school-based childhood obesity prevention initiatives.
