The Ketchikan School Board meets in regular session on Wednesday and the board’s student nutrition and physical activity policy is again on the agenda.
Approval of that policy was postponed from the board’s previous meeting.
In the meeting packet, Superintendent Robert Boyle provided proposed administrative regulations that would go with the policy. The 10 pages of regulations detail how the district will limit marketing of unhealthy food and drinks, offer Alaska farm and seafood products when possible, provide educational material about making healthy choices, and encourage more physical activity.
Also on the agenda is a $50,000 expense related to districtwide training in Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports.
Wednesday’s School Board meeting starts at 6 p.m. in borough assembly chambers at the White Cliff building. Public comment will be heard at the start and end of the meeting.
