CA Physical Education Teacher Incentive Funding


The California PE Teacher Incentive Funding supports ongoing incentive grants for school districts to hire more credentialed physical education teachers in elementary and middle schools, (K-8th grade). The purpose of the program is to help address the rising incidence of obesity and its effects by ensuring that schools have trained experts to provide the required number of instructional minutes in physical education. The funds are to be used to hire credentialed staff to help kids develop healthy life-long exercise habits.
