Online Phys Ed gets kids moving

 Florida Virtual School (FLVS) has released a new online course, Physical Education for Elementary Grades 3-5, which actively engages students in 150 minutes of physical activity every week, meeting the minimum required under the new FIT KIDS ACT.

Aligned to both the state and national PE standards for grades 3 through 5, the new course is broken into 30-minute segments that can be delivered both in and outside of a classroom or computer lab setting.

"During today's challenging economic times, our partner schools have expressed great interest in a blended model of online Elementary Physical Education," explained Sarah Sprinkel, Director of Elementary School Programs at FLVS. "Our course blends academics and deliberate movement with a purpose and provides flexibility for brick-and-mortar schools and home-schooled students to use in a number of ways."
