As leaders across the country seek to improve student health, there is a growing need for tools to help navigate the complex world of school health policy. Join us to learn more about how school health policy works, and to learn about an innovative new tool that details the hierarchy of state policies for competitive foods and beverages, administration of medication in schools, and physical education and activity. This webinar will address questions such as:
- What are the different ways state-level school health policies are adopted?
- What is the difference between legislation, regulations, state board policies and policy guidance? Why does it matter?
- Are all policies the same in terms of implementation and enforcement?
