- Texas education law requires elementary students to participate in 135 minutes of physical education weekly.
- Fitness gram – State law requires school districts to annually assess the physical fitness of students enrolled in grade three or higher and to provide the results of individual student performance on the administered physical fitness assessments to the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The Physical Fitness Assessment Initiative (PFAI) is a program designed to collect and analyze the required student physical fitness data.
- Students must wear appropriate shoes and clothing for physical education.
- Athletic shoes or tennis shoes with socks – the gym floor can be slippery so shoes with good traction are needed. Socks will help prevent friction blisters.
- Clothes should promote modesty while students run, jump, bend over, etc.
- Girls are encouraged to wear shorts or leggings under dresses and skirts.
- Parents who have a child who is ill or has physical problems must send a note to the P.E. teacher. The teacher will adjust the class requirements accordingly.
- If the child’s condition lasts more than 3 consecutive days, the principal or administrative designee may request a doctor’s statement.
- Students who are excused from PE by a parent or physician will also be restricted from recess for as long as the parent/physician limits PE participation.
