Daily Physical Education Study. Interim Report.
Metropolitan Separate School Board, Toronto (Ontario).
A report is given of a pilot project intended to develop, implement, and maintain a daily program of physical activity in kindergarten through grade eight in nine elementary Catholic schools of varying size, pupil composition, and facilities. Information is provided on the methodology of program implementation, pilot school selection criteria, and duration of the program (March 1983 through June 1985). Tables are used to convey facts about the development of the program in each of the pilot schools, as well as its implementation, and the participation of students in various activities. A general discussion of the program indicates that it was well received by students, teachers, and parents. Suggestions are made on how the program may be improved, mainly in the areas of staffing and funding. Extensive appendixes provide monitoring forms and survey results. (JD)
