Reports by District

Reports are included below for all Connecticut school districts participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Child Nutrition Programs, including the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Afterschool Snack Program and Special Milk Program. Districts not participating in the USDA programs were not required to develop a policy. Each report includes the one-page summary (School Wellness Policy Report) followed by the district’s scores for each policy item (School Wellness Policy Rating Sheet).

“SMP” designates schools that participate only in the Special Milk Program. An asterisk (*) designates districts that have revised their policy since the completion of the School Wellness Policy Report. Contact the district directly for additional information regarding their revised school wellness policy. For more information, see the list of school district Web sites.
