The bill creates the health and wellness through comprehensive
quality physical education instruction pilot program (pilot program) in the
department of education (department).
The purpose of the pilot program is to allow a school or a school
district, as defined in the bill, serving any of grades K-8, to apply for

grant money to implement a pilot program in a school or in schools of a
school district. The pilot program must be implemented in all K-8 grades
in the school or school district.
Pilot program grants are for 3 academic years and are awarded to
at least 15 but not more than 30 eligible schools or school districts for a
total of not more than $3 million awarded annually, including department
administrative expenses. Pilot program grants are awarded in February
prior to the first academic year to allow grantees to create a 3-year plan
for the use of the grant money.
The bill includes application deadlines and criteria for the award
of grants. The department will review grant applications and make
recommendations to the state board of education for the award of the pilot
program grants.
Grant money awarded through the pilot program can be used only
to implement comprehensive quality physical education instruction, as
described in the bill. The bill lists the components that must be included
in a comprehensive quality physical education instruction program.
The department shall contract with a program evaluator for
purposes of completing a program evaluation of the pilot program at the
end of the 3-year grant period. The bill lists program evaluation criteria.
First priority shall be given to a vendor proposal from a state-supported
institution of higher education that has the expertise necessary to assess
the impact of the pilot program.
The bill requires annual reporting to the education committees of
the senate and the house of representatives.
