4. What are the physical activity requirements for students in grades 6-8?
The TEC §28.002(l) requires students enrolled in grade levels six, seven, and eight to participate in moderate
or vigorous daily physical activity for at least 30 minutes for at least four semesters during those grade levels
as part of the district's physical education curriculum.
Additionally, a school district may as an alternative require a student enrolled in a grade level for which the
district uses block scheduling to participate in moderate or vigorous physical activity for at least 225 minutes
during each period of two school weeks.
