马萨诸塞州学校健康 辅导计划

As a result of the findings from the Massachusetts School Wellness Needs Assessment (MSWNA), the Office for Food and Nutrition at the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) and The John C. Stalker Institute of Food & Nutrition (JSI) at Framingham State University collaborated to develop the Massachusetts School Wellness Coaching Program (MSWCP). Partnering theory with evidence-based strategies for school wellness success, this model helps schools get those wellness policies off the shelf and into action!

The MSWCP provides schools and school districts technical assistance with assessment, action planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation with an emphasis on enhancing compliance with the USDA Final Rule for Local School Wellness Policy Implementation under the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. It is intended for schools and school districts that have an established school wellness committee and a written local school wellness policy (LSWP).

There are two tiers in the program. Districts may participate in either tier, and are selected* for participation in the appropriate tier based on:

  • The components of the written local wellness policy
  • The status of the school wellness committee
  • The needs identified by the district in their application

Tier 1: Perfecting Policy

Goal: To assist the school wellness committee in assessing and revising their local wellness policy so that is compliant with state and federal requirements.

This tier includes:

  • Two** virtual 1.5-hour coach-facilitated meetings
    1. Complete WellSAT 3.0 assessment of LSWP
    2. Local wellness policy revisions based on WellSAT 3.0 results
  • Technical assistance
  • Compliance review of the revised policy by the School Wellness Coach and DESE School Wellness Specialist prior to school wellness committee’s submission to school board or equivalent for adoption

Tier 2: Implementing Initiatives

Goal: To assist the school wellness committee in assessing the implementation of the local school wellness policy, and prioritize and develop wellness action plans.

This tier includes:

  • Four** virtual 1-hour coach-facilitated meetings
    1. Complete the Massachusetts Local Wellness Policy Implementation Evaluation Form
    2. Identify wellness priorities
    3. Wellness action planning
    4. Monitoring and evaluation of action plans; sharing and celebrating success
  • Technical assistance

*Space in the program is limited. If the school/district is not selected, DESE will identify alternative trainings and resources specific to the district’s needs based on the application submission.
**Massachusetts regulation 105 CMR 215:000: Standards for School Wellness Advisory Committees requires school wellness committees to meet at least four times per year. A school/district participating in Tier 1 will need to meet 2 additional times outside of the MSWCP to be compliant. Districts participating in Tier 2 will meet this requirement through the four MSWCP meetings.
