D.C. schools are still a long way from meeting physical education targets

 

December 4, 2018



D.C. schools continue to fall well short of meeting physical education and activity requirements set forth by the city, according to a report from the Office of the State Superintendent of Education.

The D.C. Healthy Schools Act of 2010 mandates that students in kindergarten through fifth grade receive 150 minutes of physical education per week, while students in sixth through eighth grades receive 225 minutes. At least 50 percent of that class time must include physical activity.
