Healthy Schools Act (HSA)

In May of 2010, the DC City Council passed the Healthy Schools Act of 2010 (18-0209). This comprehensive legislation ensures that schools are a healthy place for all students. The Healthy Schools Act has provisions addressing school meals, farm to school, school gardens, local wellness policies, healthy vending, fundraising and prizes, physical activity, physical education, and health education. The Healthy Schools Act also requires annual reporting to the Mayor, the Council, and the Healthy Youth and Schools Commission on farm to school and school garden activities, compliance of public and public charter schools with the physical and health education requirements of HSA,  and student achievement with respect to OSSE’s Health Education Standards and Physical Education Standards.
