In 2004 Congress passed the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act. This Act required each school district that participates in the National School Lunch Program adopt a local wellness policy addressing healthy eating and physical activity. The Jackson R2 Board of Education adopted a wellness policy in June 2006. The policy, developed by a committee, relates to the health and well being of the children and staff of the district. The primary objective of the policy is to promote student and staff health and reduce childhood obesity.

The health & wellness committee meets each semester in the Ignite Center at the High School.
