Physical Fitness Testing

As you may know, we are required to administer the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) to all of our 5th, 7th, and 9th grade students. The State Board of Education designated the FITNESSGRAM as the test we are to use. Students in grades five, seven, and nine are required to take the PFT, whether or not they are enrolled in a PE class. Students who are physically unable to take the entire test battery are to be given as much of the test as conditions permit. The testing window is now open and it will close on Friday, May 19, 2017.

THE TESTING DATA MUST BE ENTERED IN AERIES NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, MAY 19, 2017.

PFT administration videos are available at the following website: https://pftdata.org/training.aspx
