What is Active Schools?
Active Schools is a physical activity and physical education solution to ensure 60 minutes of physical activity is the new norm for schools. Powered by a national collaboration of leading health and education organizations, Active Schools streamlines the selection of programs, resources, professional development and funding opportunities, and delivers a customized action plan – making it simple for teachers and strategic for administrators. Ultimately, Active Schools, part of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, helps schools develop a culture in which physical activity and physical education are foundational to academic success.
