Texas has been using the FITNESSGRAM® (FG) health-related fitness assessment since SY07-08 per SB530. At that time, private funding paid for all TX districts to receive FG desktop software. TEA has been gathering data annually with districts uploading FG scores each Spring. state 2013: During the 83 rd TX legislative session, funding was approved to support the upgrade to FG 10 state software program for districts. FG 10 is a web-based, statewide data collection system. I NTRODUCTION & B ACKGROUND
The Texas Education Code (TEC) § states that a school district must annually assess the physical fitness of students enrolled in grade three or higher in a course that satisfies the curriculum requirements for physical education under TEC § (a)(2)(C).§38.101§ (a)(2)(C). Schools must assess students in grades 3-8 as well as assess any student at the high school level enrolled in a Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) based course for physical education, or anyone in a substitution for physical education. Students that are enrolled in athletics, off-campus private or commercially sponsored physical activity programs, or ROTC must always be assessed. Those students that are in drill team, cheerleading, or marching band are only assessed if they are substituting the “activity” for the physical education credit. T EXAS L EGISLATION
