The Trigg County School District’s annual school nutrition report card has changed slightly, but it still serves the same purpose.

And like in previous years, parents and others will get a chance to hear school officials’ recommendations in response to the report card at 6:30 p.m., right before the regular Trigg County Board of Education meeting.

“We’re working with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. They have some tools to utilize in regards to that,” said Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby. “This is something we do every year … and it lags a year behind.”

Hamby says the nutrition report card – which always lags a year behind – works largely like a regular report card. It measures nutrition and physical activity.

One of the changes involves the assessment, which now gives a rating of “Bronze,” “Silver,” “Gold” or “n/a” for various elements of health, wellness and nutrition. For policies and meals, all four schools earned a “Bronze,” for example.
