The purpose of this school improvement plan is to increase the minutes of physical activity experienced by middle school students during the school day. Students are falling short in meeting the recommended 60 minutes of daily moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. With most schools returning to prior COVID-19 pandemic in-person learning, emphasis on students catching up in the core academic subjects such as math and reading exists. Time spent implementing classroom physical activity not only increases physical activity minutes, but it also has positive impacts on student focus, behavior, and academic performance. As students transition from the elementary school setting to secondary schools, a reduction occurs in physical activity experienced during the school day. This school improvement plan will provide middle school staff with resources to implement physical activity within the content area curriculum, activities, and lesson plans resulting in increased physical activity minutes experienced by students.
