SB530 by Nelson (relating to physical activity requirements and physical fitness assessment for certain public school students.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The Texas Education Agency assumes that physical assessments for students through grade eight can be conducted as part of already designated physical education classes or extracurricular activities. Assessments for high school students who are enrolled in a physical education class or extracurricular activity would be expected to be conducted in like manner.
School districts could experience varying levels of additional workload and associated cost with annual assessments of high school students who are not enrolled in physical education class or extracurricular activity. School districts would be anticipated to experience additional cost associated with the collection, summarization and submission of annual physical assessment data. Costs associated with these activities would vary depending upon local practice and the availability of automated processes for data reporting and aggregation.
