Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. It was one of the best that I can remember. Time with family really does re-energize! With the new year comes new hope for the future. With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act which included the inclusion of health and physical education as part of every student's well rounded education, we have actual reasons to hope.
We need to start advocating in our districts to make certain that the decision makers are ready to use some of the funds from the new Title IV towards health and physical education. We are still waiting for how and when the new funds will be distributed to the DPI and then to the schools. The federal fiscal year starts October 1st but again, we don't know when the DPI will be distributing funds to the schools. As we find out, we will share it. In the mean time, check out the links from some information on the new ESSA from SHAPE America.
Have a great second semester everyone!
