    9) AUTHORITY TO PROVIDE FOOD AND BEVERAGES


    a. The Nutrition Services Director will have the responsibility and authority to oversee and approve all food and
    beverages to be served to the students, by any entity, starting at midnight and up to one half hour after the school
    day to ensure food safety and to maximize the schools' ability to serve healthy and appealing meals.


    b. The Nutrition Services Director will have the responsibility and authority to oversee and approve the
    nutritious snack required in state and federally funded before-school and after-school programs.


    c. The Nutrition Services Director will provide a menu for classroom parties. All parents and teachers are
    encouraged to serve food items from this menu. Foods of minimum nutritional value are not allowed to be
    served during the school day by parents or teachers in the classroom. Any food to be served that is not from
    existing menus must be purchased from the approved, state-certified sources provided by the Director of
    Nutrition Services. This ensures food safety and maximizes the ability of the Nutrition Services Director to
    oversee that healthy and appealing meals are served in accordance with federal nutrition standards (Smart
    Snacks in School) and the CDE's Competitive Food and Beverage nutrition standards, and Nutrition Services
    Directives.
