How we accomplish our goals

Nutrition Services Wellness
Nutrition Services has a registered dietitian on staff. It is important to us that all students have the nutrition they need to be fit, healthy and ready for success. Our menus contain whole-grains, lean proteins, low-fat dairy, and fresh fruits and vegetables every day. In addition, our Provision 2 Breakfast Program allows all students to have access to a healthy breakfast at no cost.
Our District wellness policy can be found on the BCSS Board Policy Page.
Each school has a local wellness representative. Schools engage in wellness activities for both students and staff throughout the school year. Compliance with the Wellness Policy is based on completion of the Bartow County School District Wellness Policy Evaluation Tool. During the 2016-2017 school year, compliance with the Wellness Policy was 100% for our school district. For school year 2017-2018, compliance with the Wellness Policy was 79% for our school district.
