Professionally qualified directors recognize the need and possess the skills to position the SNPs as an integral part of the educational program, maximize the use of federal, state, and local funds, and build state and community alliances that provide additional program and district support. SNPs have the potential to help improve the health and academic achievement of children and adolescents, ensuring a better educated and healthier nation in the future.
SNA believes that professional standards will elevate the quality and efficiency of School Nutrition Programs nationwide with respect to nutrition, food safety, operations and fiscal management by ensuring that all administrators are better qualified to manage these complex programs.
