Let’s Move! Active Schools

Move! Active Schools
is a program that empowers school
champions – physical education teachers, classroom teachers, principals,
administrators, and parents – to create active environments that enable all
students to get moving and reach their full potential. 

Kids today are considered
the most physically inactive generation in America’s history. Only 1 in 3 kids
are physically active daily. Studies indicate that active students do better
than their more sedentary peers. Regular physical activity has also been shown
to increase concentration and attention, improve attendance, and increase
academic performance.

This program provides simple steps and tools to help
schools create active environments where students get 60 minutes of physical
activity before, during, and after the school day. Participating schools will receive
priority for physical education and physical activity grants associated with
the program, while also becoming eligible for customized technical assistance
and professional development. Any school in the United States can enroll to
receive assistance and support, at no cost.
