Saving Phys Ed

Bringing Physical Education back to Kids and Schools

To stem the tide of the childhood obesity epidemic by getting kids active during the school day, providing schools with the comprehensive P.E. programs they are currently lacking, at low or no cost to them.

The New York State Dept. of Education requires each student to receive 120mins/week of Physical Education. The mandate also states the class must be supervised by a State Certified and Licensed PE Teacher. However, many public schools nationwide do not meet minimum physical education requirements.

The problem is particularly acute in New York City, where up to 96% of schools are in violation of P.E. requirements, because of limited resources, faculty, or facilities.

Studies show that kids who are active weigh less, have lower blood pressure, and higher levels of “good” HDL cholesterol.

Led by certified physical educator Brian Semonian, P.E.P. and its team of licensed teachers and instructors will craft custom classes and programs based on each school and community’s needs.
