Policy into Practice: Q&A With One of America’s Healthiest Schools
October 25, 2018

In September, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation published the 2018 list of America’s Healthiest Schools, featuring 461 schools from 26 states and the District of Columbia. One of these schools, Irving Elementary in Illinois’ Berwyn South School District 100, benefits from a strong district wellness policy and a commitment to keeping kids active and eating healthy before, during and after school. We asked Phillip Depa, Irving’s physical education teacher and District 100’s health and wellness coordinator, to reflect on the district’s policy and practices that led to all eight of District 100’s schools being named to the list of “America’s Healthiest Schools”.
