Your District's Scorecard

Congratulations! You have completed the WellSAT. Check out your scorecard below. It contains details of how you scored on each item and section of the assessment. It also provides resources that will help you improve your district’s school wellness policy. 

Items with a rating of “0” (item not addressed in the policy) or “1” (general or weak statement addressing the item) can be improved by referring to the resource links next to the items.  Multiple resources addressing school wellness policy topics are available online. To avoid duplicative information, we have included a small selection, rather than a comprehensive listing.
