    Fitness scores healthy fitness zone hfz

    • Standards established by The Cooper Institute represent levels of fitness that offer some degree of protection against diseases which can result from sedentary living.

    • The FitnessGram assessment determines the "Healthy Fitness Zone" (HFZ). Students that achieved the HFZ received feedback stating their level of fitness was sufficient for good health.

    • HFZ fitness tests for DPS 4th & 5th grade students

    • PACER Test – Aerobic Capacity

    • Push-ups – Muscular Strength & Endurance

    • Sit and Reach – Flexibility

    Moderate to vigorous physical activity mvpa

    • An external evaluator for a federal grant was contracted to conduct classroom observations on DPS physical education teachers using the SOFIT protocol.

    • The SOFIT protocol measures the percentage of time students are engaged in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA).

    • During PE classes in DPS, the average MVPA was 64.5% compared to the national norm of 33.5%.

    • One of the DPS afterschool enrichment programs was also evaluated. The fitness portion of this program averaged 21.6 % MVPA.

    Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity (MVPA)


    School-Based Physical conduct classroom observations on DPS physical education teachers using the SOFIT protocol.

    Education Studies: Highlights

    • Eleven of 14 studies found one or more positive associations between physical education and indicators of cognitive skills and attitudes, academic behavior, and/or academic achievement.

    • Overall, increased time in physical education appears to have a positive relationship or no relationship with academic achievement.

    White House Task Force on Childhood Obesity conduct classroom observations on DPS physical education teachers using the SOFIT protocol.

    Report to President Obama

    Recommendations include:

    • Local wellness policies should include strong physical activity components, on par with nutrition components.

    • State and local education agencies should require increased quality and frequency of sequential, age- and developmentally-appropriate physical education for all students, taught by certified teachers.
