Intended for superintendents, principals, school board members, and other school officials looking to improve student health and academic achievement, upon completion, participants will be able to understand the neuroscience research showing a connection between P.E./ physical activity and academic achievement, behavior and conduct, and health, Describe how schools benefit from the allocation of dollars and time for P.E. and physical activity during the school day (the return on investment), and Describe practical steps schools can take to enhance P.E./physical activity immediately, like encouraging more rigorous physical activity during existing P.E. and other movement time (e.g., recess).
