The Vega ISD Wellness Page has been created to inform and update the public about the content and implementation of the Vega ISD local wellness policy & plan. Updates and revisions to the policy, as well as notices of SHAC meetings where the wellness policy or corresponding documents will be discussed, will be posted here.
The Vega ISD SHAC (School Health Advisory Council) was originally established in 2004 and has been a regularly meeting council since that time. The current Vega ISD SHAC meets at least 4 times per year and consists primarily of parents, in addition to the local Ag Extension Agent, the school nurse, school cafeteria manager, and the school counselor. All meetings are also attended by School Administration. Students, parents, staff, and/or community members are welcome to join the council and/or attend meetings. Please see the meeting schedule below. NOTE: Any parent, community member or potential stakeholder is welcome to help participate in the development, review, update or implementation of the Vega ISD Wellness Policy. To do so, please attend the next regularly scheduled SHAC meeting or contact our SHAC Co-Chair Cayla Blasingame, BSN, RN at 806-267-2126 or firstname.lastname@example.org for questions or more information.

Triennial Assessment: At least every three years, as required by law, the District will measure and make available to the public the results of an assessment of the implementation of the District’s Wellness Policy. The most recent assessment was completed using the assessment tool – Well SAT 3.0. Well SAT 3.0 helps schools to score and improve their Local Wellness Policy. It has been utilized by school districts in every state across the U.S. and reflects federal law or best practices. The tool helps districts to identify strengths and areas that need improvement. Please click on the Triennial Assessment link below for the most recent results (January 2020). It is important to understand how to interpret the score. Scores should not be interpreted like letter grades, according to Well SAT 3.0 standards. Well SAT reports that a 2018 testing sample of school districts from around the country revealed an average comprehensiveness score of 54 and an average strength score of 33. The most recent Vega ISD results are available at the link below.
