INTRODUCTION & BACKGROUND
• 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.
• 2013: During the 83rd 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.
TEXAS LEGISLATION
•
The Texas Education Code (TEC) §38.101 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 §28.002 (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.

• State requirement has not changed as to
