National Association of State Boards of Education--Fit, Healthy, and Ready to Learn:
A School Health Policy Guide; 2000
Daily physical education will be required for all students in grades K-12, including students with disabilities, special health-care needs, and in alternative educational settings, will receive daily physical education (or its equivalent of 150 minutes/week for elementary school students and 225 minutes/week for middle and high school students) for the entire school year.
All physical education will be taught by a certified physical education teacher.
Student involvement in other activities involving physical activity (e.g. interscholastic or intramural sports) will not be substituted for meeting the physical education requirement. Students will spend at least 50 percent of physical education class time participating in moderate to vigorous physical activity.
