The Ansonia Public Schools has been awarded grant funding, from the CT State Department of Education, for a 2 year School Nutrition project.  The Ansonia Public Schools has chosen the NuVal scoring system.  All four schools will be participating in the program, led by a Pilot Team.

The objectives of the pilot program are:

*The project will result in increased student, parent and staff knowledge of the NuVal nutrition rating system.
*To increase student’s knowledge of foods’ level of nutrition via the implementation of the NuVal rating system.
*To increase the number of students choosing healthier food options at school.
*To improve the knowledge and efficacy of the staff of the district’s food service department.
