Standards of Excellence for School Nutrition Programs. A Self-Assessment Guide for School District Fiscal Policy Teams.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
This guide was developed for fiscal policy team members to familiarize them with district policies, processes, available data, mandated responsibilities, and other requirements essential to federal and state funded school nutrition program operations. The guide is divided into nine sections: (1) organization and administration; (2) human resources management; (3) nutrition and health; (4) meal planning; (5) purchasing, storage, and distribution; (6) financial management; (7) marketing and promotion; (8) sanitation and safety; and (9) facilities and equipment. Each section contains an introductory statement, a school nutrition goal, and one or more standards that serve as reference points against which current district practices may be assessed. (JD)
