5

Why use S.M.A.R.T. goalsYou want to have a structured goal that is measurable and you can report progress on. The S.M.A.R.T. criteria helps ensure that the goals are within reason and attainable.A detailed, well set-up goal has the best chance of being achieved.Helps the school sites to better understand what they need to do to help reach the goal.

These criteria force the goal setter to address certain issues pertaining to those goals that simultaneously increase motivation and help set the steps necessary to achieve the goal.

6

SpecificSpecific is the What, Why, & How of the S.M.A.R.T. model.Example: In the 2016-2017 school year each school by the end of September.

Explanation of ExampleHow = displaying of nutritional posters in the lunchroom The what and why of this goal is nutrition education and promotion to help improve the overall health of the school environment.If it was a physical activity (PA) related goal then PA would be part of the what and why.

will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom

What will the goal accomplish. How and why will it be accomplished?

7

MeasurableGoals should be measurable so that you have tangible evidence that you have accomplished the goal.This is how progress is measured and what you will report each year. ExampleIn the 2016-2017 school year each school will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom by the end of September. Explanation of Exampleeach school will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom

at least 3 nutritional posters

8

Achievable/AttainableGoals should be achievable; they should challenge you slightly, but be defined well enough so that you can achieve them.You must possess the appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities needed to achieve the goal.ExampleIn the 2016-2017 school year each school will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom by the end of September. Explanation of exampleIn order to be able to reach this goal, someone must know how to acquire additional postersDo your sites have the ability to do these activities?

Websites like Team Nutritionfor free poster displays and ideas on how to conduct a fruit and veggie competition.

Is one fruit and veggie competition per quarter doable for your school? Maybe do one the first year and work up to more after that. Could you do more nutrition education messages per week during announcements?

9

Results-focused/RelevantGoals should measure outcomes, not activities. ExampleIn the 2016-2017 school year each school will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom by the end of September. Explanation of ExampleThe result of this goal is to make this school environment healthier by promoting healthier choices to the students and staff. The school can achieve this by performing the specific activity they laid out in the goal: displaying more posters. Is this goal relevant to the SWP and does it fit into one of the three goal categories?Nutrition promotion and educationPhysical activityOther school-based activities that promote student wellness

Results-focused or relevant goal represents a worthwhile objective. Goals should be important to the work and focus on results.

10

Time-boundAny effective goal must have a target date.A deadline set too far in the future invites procrastination. A short term goal could be unrealistic and discouraging. Without the time-limit there is no sense of urgency and drive to accomplish the goal. ExampleIn the 2016-2017 school year each school will display at least 3 nutritional posters in the lunchroom by the end of September. Explanation of example2016-2017 school year, also by the end of September.
