FitnessGram is a health-related physical fitness assessment. The Texas Education Agency requires FitnessGram testing of students in grades 3-12 participating in any of the following classes or activities:

  • Physical Education
  • Athletics
  • Off-Campus Physical Education
  • Cheerleading
  • Drill Team
  • Dance (when used to meet the physical activity requirement in K-8)
  • Marching Band

Each of the test items were selected to assess important aspects of a student's health-related fitness, not skill or agility. Students are not compared to each other, but rather to criterion-based Healthy Fitness Zone standards, carefully established for each age and gender, that indicates good health. More information on the Healthy Fitness Zone standards can be found on the Human Kinetics website.

Coordinated School Health Program

WSCC Model GraphicThe Texas Education Agency (TEA) requires school districts to provide school health (CSH) programs to its students. Each program is designed to prevent obesity, cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes in elementary and middle school students. Each program must coordinate health education, including oral health education, physical education and physical activity, nutrition services, and parental involvement. 

LISD uses the Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program as its CSH.
