Active Schools is a national collaborative of 30 leading health, education and private sector partners. Our goal is to help K-12 schools create an Active School environment where students participate in at least 60 minutes of before, during and after school physical activity each day, thus gaining significant health and academic benefits. Through our partner organizations, we provide schools with access to evidence-based resources: tools, training, technical assistance, grants, progress incentives, and national recognition.
Let’s Move! Active Schools will encourage all enrolled schools to Commit to Inclusion and provide support to them in their efforts.
Partnership for Inclusive Health Quote
“All children deserve the benefits — and fun — of participating in physical activity. Providing an inclusive school physical education and physical activity environment is not difficult, but it must be done purposefully. The Partnership for Inclusive Health will provide a great network for disseminating information and tools to create Active Schools that meet the needs of students with disabilities.” – Charlene Burgeson, Executive Director of Active Schools
