Important Advocacy Updates: 

The bipartisan Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) includes a flexible block grant program under Title IV, Part A "Student Support and Academic Enrichment Grants." This block grant program authorizes activities in three broad areas including providing students with a well-rounded education*, supporting safe and healthy students, and supporting the effective use of technology. Alabama's plan specifies funds may be used for "Implementing programs that support a healthy, active lifestyle (nutritional and physical education)."

Title IV, Part A was funded at $1.1 billion for the 2018-2019 school year; Alabama's estimated share is $16,544,000 giving school districts access to significant funding to support these program areas, which include health education and physical education!
