Implementation of Key Initiatives

  • PE content standards have been shared with all K-5 teachers along with the understanding that PE instruction needed to be standards based.
  • In cases where instructional minute requirements were not being met, schedules were reconfigured to meet the 200 minute (every ten days) requirement.
  • Research was conducted into finding a quality, standards-based PE program that would guide PE instruction and could be used by teachers and PE specialists at all K-5 sites.
  • After extensive research, the CATCH PE Program was approved and is currently in use at all sites.
  • In addition, our district applied for and received a state grant designed to support the purchase of PE equipment and materials. This grant provided some funding for the purchase of CATCH materials and necessary PE equipment.
  • PE specialists at three elementary sites work with teachers to deliver the bulk of the PE instruction using the CATCH program as a piece of the curriculum.At one elementary site, teachers deliver the PE program using CATCH materials.
  • At the middle school level, students in grades six through eight take a forty-three minute PE class daily taught by a credentialed PE teacher.

How do we measure success?

  • The CATCH Program is being implemented at all K-5 sites.
  • Anecdotal data from teachers shows very positive results from using the program. Teachers like the way in which it is organized and the flexibility that it provides.
  • As required by State law, students participate in PE for a total of 200 minutes during a ten day period.
  • PE instruction is now standards based at all sites.

What are the challenges?

  • Keeping all equipment in good working order.
  • Finding adequate storage for the equipment.

What are the next steps?

  • Continue to monitor the progress of the program.
  • Meet with PE specialists to determine support that may be needed.
  • Continue to inventory and replace any broken equipment.
