This Webinar will provide guidance on how communities can build sustainable partnerships with schools to implement comprehensive school-based physical activity programs. Subject-matter-experts will share high-impact strategies, tools, and resources that communities can use to enable students to achieve the national recommendation of 60 minutes of physical activity per day. Participants will learn how physical activity in schools can reduce health disparities and how health departments can help schools improve physical activity in classrooms, during recess, during formal physical education, and while traveling to and from school. An awardee presenter will also discuss how states can work with local communities to implement coordinated school health programs.
