More CA Kids Meeting Fitness Standards: Find Local Data from '10
May is National Physical Fitness and Sports Month, and over the next few weeks, kidsdata.org will bring attention to children’s weight and fitness in California.
This week’s focus is on student fitness results. Here in California, the percentage of public school students meeting all six state fitness standards has improved over the last decade for 5th, 7th, and 9th graders. Depending on the gender and grade, about 25% to 40% of California students meet the state’s standards, according to these recently released data from the California Department of Education.
