Partnerships for School Health Webinar 11 5 14

technical difficulties all right finish it we’re just using a TT in at a webinar and a conference call at the same time that’s fun all right um yeah I’d like to kick off today’s discussion talking about farm to school um aunt Edie a statewide initiative the resources and tools that TDA can provide if then you’re destroyed or a campus within your district is interested in furness pool there we go okay so just as the description for today’s presentation um included an answer four questions and that I often receive what is Farm to School why is it important how do you get Farm to School in your district what and what resources are available to support from the school and then lastly I thrown in one additional question that wasn’t initially on the description and that’s what is happening across Texas because often it it’s great to hear ideas but to really see any pictures and read about tangible models of what’s happening is really the most helpful so I threw that in there as well as if our presentation so Farm to School is best illustrated through pictures not work so for our first question what is farm to school I’m going to show of two pictures to answer this question first of all farm to school is incorporating local products in this school meal and you can see some pictures there the first two from harlingen consolidated ISD and smithville ISD our photos of a school meal line cafeteria meal line that have incorporated Texas products into the meal we have some beautiful grapefruit an apple star fruit tail and then the third picture is from idea public schools they have a campus farm at several of the pressure school campuses and the farms have a farmer on site then and grow fruits and vegetables specific for the cafeteria so incorporating local products can come from a variety of sources purchasing directly from a farmer or Rancher purchasing local products from the distributor that’s on contract or such as idea those can grow their own food if they fly um and all of the pictures here show fruits and vegetables but firm just will includes everything from fruits vegetables protein milk brains if it’s not found on the cafeteria tray we are so lucky in Texas we have a great AG economy um we can get almost everything from work after a meal from a Texas farmer or Rancher so Farm to School is local products and school meals Farm to School is also providing educational opportunities for students then that first picture from Magnolia is d that is the district chef providing a demonstration and taste test for students and that was actually featured as spread of their national school lunch week celebration for two weeks ago during National School Lunch week the middle picture there from Eagle Mountain saginaw is a presentation to a large group of kids as full assembly and it’s a little hard to leave it up in the front the school mascot is leaving the presentations talking about living a healthy lifestyle because the active eating a balanced meal using the my plate protocol using that is that as an idea for kids to really understand what is a healthy plate look like a mineralized picture there is from smith elias key that is a farmer that comes through the campus and helps with their garden and teaches the kids about burning fruits and vegetables so educational opportunities can divert to the local products they can educational foods can look very different for each campus and from the school is also garden based learning this is the most description taking a educational opportunities and putting into the into a garden study so we have some different photos from various school gardens and that really illustrates that a garden can look very different depending on what the campus

setting it there’s no one-size-fits-all for for garden based learning it can be posted in raised beds such as you see from elgin and magnolia or in-ground beds if that works better like arts bluff has installed or could even be container garden like Smith little hat all of those offer great opportunities for garden based learning and what’s great about guard based learning almost every single subject can be can be taught in the garden in some way you so our next question is why is farm-to-school important and i pulled out three reasons Farm to School is important and there has been research published that support each of these points so firm missile is important because when those purchase Texas food items they support the local economy farm to school is important because when skins learn about where their food comes from they’re more likely to develop a positive relationship with healthy food and farm to school is important because when schools community members and farmers or ranchers all come together with a common goal there’s an overall positive impact entity so I didn’t want to overwhelm anyone with the specific research points that that support these but if you are are interested in from just school and really want to dig into any of these points um we’ll get to my contact information later on in the presentation but please reach out to me there’s some great information so how important it is for for money to stay in the local economy and what that does to businesses and jobs and there’s absolutely a lot of research that supports what happens in in a student’s life when they develop that positive relationship with with healthy food so I often am asked that we get farm to school at my campus in my district in my community um and that’s a very interesting question and it’s a certainly one of the first steps folks they’re going to want to know well I’m interested in having local products how do I get that so what’s important to remember is Farm to School isn’t a program if there’s not an application there’s no checklist of things that you have to do in order to save have a farm to school program firm to school is the idea of connecting kids with local products and then teaching them about those those ingredients so it might look very different as the photos earlier in the presentation show that firm just looking look different for different campuses different communities there’s no one-size-fits-all so you’re interested um one of the first things to do is research what’s available for informational materials and and some successful models of what’s happening across Texas um now really help solidify what are your goals and when you want to do what would work in your community which will then the answers those questions will really lead you forward and then the next step is to develop Community Partnership all of the successful Farm to School initiatives are built on partnerships it’s not a one person’s responsibility to take care of everything in on a campus or in a community and it really takes a group of folks that are are looking to accomplish the same full once you have your group of partners identified starting slowly a a key phrase in firm just Lewis pilot project starts up slowly see what works you make adjustments as you need to within your within your district and then planning carefully to know the things things may not go as you initially plan and that’s okay that’s what pilot projects are great is you can learn from those those individual campus projects or if it’s a garden based learning project start with with one grade level one classroom see how it works and then expand from there um and with any project whether it’s farm to school or or another type of project communication is talking to your community partners talking to others within the school whether that be administrators teachers full health partners communication is always so still sounds great but you’re looking for some resources awesome first side

I’d recommend looking online the Texas Department of Agriculture has a firm school initiative website where meals org board / farm to school and there’s a little screenshot of what the homepage perform to school looks like and depending on them what part of the community you’re in there’s resources specific for fools there’s resources for AG producers for farmers ranchers and for community members and those resources are tailored to each audience to really help everyone to understand how they can fit into a successful farm to school project and TDA also has a great boost meal appeal resources on real star word and those resources really speak to full meal programs cafeteria team members so if you’re you’re looking to you want the local products on your cafeteria menu that’s great if you’re not currently working in the school nutrition department center district follow the nutrition director called the cafeteria manager and help connect them to this this website of you if they’re not aware of it TDA also provides training and technical assistance we have some printed resources there’s two examples there on the screen one talks about what Farm to School is and what we’ve talked about today and then we have a brochure specific about learning based learning and the benefits of learning in a garden environment um and you got to look and see what partners you have within your within your organization within your district campus or maybe within your your community you have nonprofit organizations that have similar goals that’s partner with and of course don’t forget about TVA the Department of Ag i am the farm school program specialist this is what I focused my efforts on so as I mentioned we’ll get to my contact information but i’m always here as a resource to either help you really dig into anything that you be online or maybe answer a question that isn’t clearly answered online I’m here to help no fun taking it there absolutely absolutely fun there so our last question is we really really want to look at what’s happening across Texas does anyone in in Texas even care about Farm to School folks has full gardens um I I encourage you to look at the map we have on sperm real stud or four slash farm to school there is a method farmville projects um that shows across the state there is there’s strong interest in front of school and each of the dots you see on the map represent a school district that has reported to TVA that they have some aspect of forms of school whether that in purchasing local products from a farmer or Rancher maybe they’re purchasing local product through a contract distributor or they have learning based learning maybe they’re offering field trips to local farms so that you can see on farm activities and so it really encourage you get to look and see what’s happening maybe in your district there’s something happening that you weren’t familiar with or in your neighboring strength it’s always good just find out what what are my neighbors doing and I’m could they be a potential partner for me to learn from and we also have success stories spotlight story highlighted on square meals org and those really dig into districts and campuses that have had real success with farm to school or have something unique about farm to school for example I showed a picture of the idea of public schools on campus farm there’s a spotlight story about their Farm to School efforts so if an on-campus farm interest you and you want to see it how are they making it work I encourage you to go online and read the spotlight story about them and the CFS sounds like something that would work in your district or maybe in a neighboring district think that would be really cool to partner with we also have some spotlight stories focused on school meal programs called an adult care Food Program and summer meal program so all of those offer great ideas of end models of what’s happening successfully in Texas and I’m can spark some interest you so lastly I’d love to answer any questions that anyone may have right now and give you my contact information

please call me or email me um if you don’t have a question right now that’s certainly okay if you think about one later um I would love to love to talk to you instead maybe explore what could work in your community I’m going going back to your slide Alyssa how many um closet headlamp how many actually for how many district that’s a great question so the map right now illustrates information that was collected in 2012 survey and more than a third of Texas school districts have some aspect of Farm to School you as we said duck be incorporating local products or it could be a garden and I feel there’s more as well those are those are folks that responded to our survey if you go on the map and you don’t see your district listed and you know hey we have a garden um reach out to me because I’m actually conducting another statewide survey right now and we’ll be updating the map to show new survey results so we definitely want to get your program on the map if it’s not already there but yeah more than a third of Texas school districts have some sort of pharmacy school okay how many how many schools have a actual form ah yeah that’s a great question right now the only one on the wear of is the idea public schools and they have currently three campus farm three has their different campuses now I have had a lot of interest come my way about campus farm so I can see that number expanding relatively quickly soon because I’m sure that could also help offset some of the cost to the campus 12 absolutely absolutely Bernie has a great point um campus farms can grow fruits and vegetables that are used in the cafeteria or they could be sold at a farmers market or donated back into the community to help with food access so it certainly offers a great opportunity to increase fruits and vegetables within a community thanks listen we have any questions to pop up point out in one well it’s back home screen danger that’ll be great thanks everyone alright our next presenter is actually coming to us from Fort Worth Texas her name is Debbie ray Deborah ray and she is the associate dean of research at TCU she’s professor kinesiology there at TCU and a non are our list here that had some some abbreviations that I’m not so sure this Aggie knows exactly what those abbreviations mean but i’m sure that miss reh we’ll we’ll be more than happy to share that information with this will miss ray go ahead and take it away okay so and you there you go thank you you can see my just warm okay let me go ahead and get to the house that can everybody hear me we can hear he’s good on this end all right well good morning everyone as Barney tells you I’m from TCU and I’m the president-elect for our tapered organization which is the health physical education recreation and dance group in the state and y’all came to me well came to our group the tapered group and so that you were really in what was going on with physical education recess childhood obesity and how do we really get to some of the information we need to know in order to know that we have quality programs out there and what are some of the questions we need to ask where some of the directions or what are some of the directions we need to go so just to give you a little background on me before I get started I am I trained physical education teachers in the state I do in-service training for physical education in the state and line newest project is launching multiple recesses in schools across the state I’m starting the dallas-fort Worth area but we’re seeing great success so far in that direction my philosophy at this point is that we should have physical education daily and recess multiple times daily throughout a school day so that kind of gives you an idea of where I’m coming from as I do the talk but I also want to say before I get started on this slide that childhood childhood obesity did not start just yesterday as we all know it’s been building for about

30 years and as we think about how obesity came to be it really does go to the first presentation which is Farm to School I love that in that we’ve got to eat right and the other part is we have to move and those two pieces seem so simple when we think about them but in reality if we’re not moving throughout the day in our school and classrooms and if we’re not eating right then there’s no wonder that we’re not falling asleep in our chairs being bored with what’s being presented and actually not being able to take in the information that’s given to us so is that I’m going to go ahead and get started for many of you you may already know the shape of the nation but I wanted to give you a little bit of a report some from the US perspective and some some from Texas so let’s start with the nation we have six states that require PE in grades K through 12 what does that really mean well Texas is one of them that does require PE illinois is one there are four others across the country but what that shows you it’s a big deal if you require PE and why do we require it because if we don’t it would be removed and the reason it would be removed is because the philosophy across our country right now is that we need to just keep shoveling in content as fast as we can so as we move all the different aspects of this I just want you to think about how schools administrators parents communities think about multiple education where you are and whether or not they see it as an important factor and if they do see is important factor why and if they don’t see it as one how do we educate them to become more interested in having te in the schools since in Texas we do have the requirement rules you have to adhere to a certain extent but i would say that there are still districts out there that do not adhere to the strict policies that we have almost half of the US students do not receive PE in an average week OBC will cost the US and estimated 344 billion by 2018 I think this is interesting on recess is only required in about nine states we don’t require it in Texas but what we see is is that most schools across the nation offer no more than one recess and usually zero recesses so you can just imagine if you were sitting in that chair like you’re doing right now without being able to go up and move around more than every 45 minutes to an hour and even if that it’s strictly just to get up to go to the bathroom and go back to your seat if you were sitting like that from eight to four like these kids are in the schools what does that really mean for you and that that’s part of the concern that I have as an educator is that we need more movement out there in the schools and then only 14 states require fitness assessments I’ll say more about this in just a minute but I I will put this blanket statement out that I feel like the u.s. is pretty much what I call obsessive-compulsive we have OCD and the reason I say that is because about every three years we decide that we don’t like whatever’s going on and we start changing things again and one of the things that we’re really on right now is assessments and the big deal is that every school district needs to have all these assessments and so physical education is jumped on the bandwagon and thinks that we need to have fitness as well so much for everybody and my mind quality as far as the research goes and what I’ve seen was working with kids is the more we think about just measuring with an assessment what good does that do is 10 years from now with what that assessment meant on how fit you are healthy you are and where you are 10 years from now with well I don’t have an assessment anymore so I’m going to do it be as I please and I do the same philosophy with the kids that I trained in the college setting I don’t ask them to pass a fitness assessment I demand from them every day to be able to do things in the classroom or in the gym that require fitness but I don’t ask them to do an assessment on that why because if I don’t teach them right now how to be good stewards of activity as they grow older and that physical activities should be valued as part of their life long skill they will not be the mentors and the role models in 10 to 15 years that I see in them right now the assessment will make no difference on that so as I talk about these things assessment to me it’s kind of a an area where I think we are going overboard you

can see here this is our Texas state of mission profile and it gives you some ideas of what’s going on across our state amount of PT required we do not require the amount in all k-12 settings we do require that PE be done but not how much should be done at all k-12 settings we do require K through 8 UC in 2010 we did and then graduation required we have to have a one credit of high school PE before with the students can graduate we don’t have exemptions and waivers which is a good thing I hope we don’t put that in at any point you can see that on a physical activity perspective for k-8 kids it’s now 101 to 150 minutes and you’ll see in a minute where that actually breaks down elementary to middle school and there’s not a school Wellness Policy although most schools in the state of Texas do have them but it’s not required and we do have what’s called tieks which is Texas essential knowledge and skills that our state standards just as we have nasty standards which are national standards for all states to pretty much try to move towards we don’t have state curriculum for physical education but there are physical education curriculum zout there that individuals can purchase if they want to or they usually just put together their own class size you notice that it’s larger than what a class size for a classroom teacher would be and the the words on the statements for the bill say as long as the aquarium is safe or stated to be safe then you can actually go higher than 45 to one so many schools across Texas have 60 to 100 students in the class we do have online PE as something that can be used as a substitution and we use fitnessgram as our assessment profile which is not normative but more criterion based and we do require licensed professionals to be the physical education teachers and we do allow temporary certifications you can see here that cardiovascular passing rates for third and well third graders aren’t on here but fourth graders are pretty high but as you move through the age from fourth grade through twelfth grade you see that the passing rates for cardiovascular endurance go significantly they decrease significantly what this is the message that I want to give you on this is that many administrators look at these types or results and instead of saying we really need to improve our kids cardiovascular endurance many administrators will say things like you know if kids really are this disinterested in it and they probably do things better outside of a school setting I just don’t understand why we’re doing physical education in the schools my statement for that would be these kids need movement and they need fitness you know walking programs running programs biking programs whatever would work for them as they get older that move us more towards recreational activities and less towards athletics so the role of physical education against childhood obesity three areas that we emphasize in a physical education model movement knowledge and socialization so if any of you are high and big on the domains of learning we go across all three domains of learning meaning that the movement side the cognitive side and the social effective side what does that mean for what we do in physical education it truly is what it says you know you can have recess out there which is unstructured and more play related but that does not get to a cognitive component or the actual how we move properly will skills and so what physical education does that that recess doesn’t do is it allows students to be able to learn strategies different types of rule accommodations it could be lead-up games that they might then be able to play at a beach or in their backyard or on a playground or in the park how do we fight obesity with physical education well here are two statements that I feel are very important moving forward as I explain the rest physical education in the schools guarantees that children have opportunities to be active during the school day quality physical education goes beyond providing activity opportunities and promises to provide children with opportunities to learn meaningful and appropriate instruction

so what I’m going to add here is at a quality program not only gives us the movement capability but it also gives us the understanding of why is we need to be active and it also gives us the effective side which is the value of why we should be active because we love how it makes us feel it creates higher self-esteem it lowers cholesterol issues type 2 diabetes things like that which is the cognitive side what I’m going to do now is I’m going to go into the quality what makes or constitutes a quality programs and I’m going to focus on what we’re doing in texas but i’m also going to say that we have a great national organization called shape America and shape America really has outstanding resources that stay communes or states can come up with their own resources on top of what the the national program does but this probe the you see on this picture here opportunity to learn is these are documents that are put out for elementary middle school in high school they’re on the shape America website they can be purchased or if you’re a member of shape you can download these types of documents free one time with no charge what is the opportunity to learn it is giving guidelines for what different types of situations do students need in order to learn information and this would go across lots of different activities but rhythm and dance tumbling or balanced movement of types of body awareness types of activities it could be fitness activities which would be sports individual and dual sports or team and group sports but we really try to keep them more minimized on the team sports and go more towards an individual duel when we can outdoor education and let me tell you outdoor education is becoming huge from the K through 12 setting not just middle school in high school anymore in fact i’m doing an in-service this next week with fort worth isd on outdoor education and doing some things in on school sites related to outdoor ed for K through 5 grade levels and then when we talk about meaningful content it’s what are the all the criteria that are needed in order for students to really know how this is meaningful for them not ten years from now but right now and so an example I’ll give is being able to talk to students about if they are really wanting to concentrate on feeling good and being able to focus better and be in an environment where they’re not falling asleep or they don’t feel sluggish then the best way to do that is by eating right which goes back to what the first speaker talked about and then being active and making sure that they create on breaks every our to be able to do the kinds of activities that they really feel are meaningful and those meaningful times our maximum participation being able to work with others in a meaningful way being able to socialize in those appropriate context and then appropriate instruction and I will talk about appropriate instruction in just a second so nasty is our national group called National Association of sport and physical education they are under the umbrella of America and their state content or their content standards have actually been condensed from six to five but you’ll see on here that if you are looking at standard one you can see that this has to do with moving that this physically literate person would be our clearance for a variety of skills standard 2 has to do with cognitive being that we understand the knowledge and principles tactics standard 3 goes across knowledge again for fitness levels and activity levels standards 4 and 5 go across the social and emotional through being able to show separate personal and social responsibility to self and others and then that value piece that I’ve been talking about we in the state have very similar content standards that we use whenever we’re putting together instructional objectives and lesson plans you see over here this national standards outcomes you can actually purchase this from the shape America site as well the physical activity guidelines is a little bit different and I think it’s very interesting to bring up at this point there are four guidelines related to physical activity in our country and one of them is is that children should accumulate it’s at least 60 minutes a day well if they’re doing that if they’re getting 60 minutes of activity a

day it should help curb the obesity rates in our country the the way that we eat is one part of the problem but the lack of movement the sedentary behaviors that our kids have is really even more magnified than the way they’re eating if they start moving more they’re eating choices could change even if we set a goal that you know if they’re moving 60 minutes a day and they take out 144 ouncer big gulp a day that could significantly change the amount of obesity we have not only in our state but across the country and in our state right now overweight and obese were somewhere in that sixty percent range and some areas of the state are much more overweight and obese than other areas of the state but just in general it’s about sixty percent guideline to talks about having 15 minutes at a time of this physical activity which is awesome and then it talks on the last guideline about no more than two hours sitting before you take another break and just to give you an aside I came back from Finland two years ago I did a sabbatical over there for six weeks and they believe that we should be doing 120 minutes a day of activity and every 45 minutes we should have a 15-minute break so this sounds like very doable compared to what Finland is doing right now I would hope you could see and then guideline three talks about having different types of activities for the participation for these children as they go across the k-12 setting what’s appropriate and what’s inappropriate well we have guidelines at elementary middle and high school level to show that and when I trained teachers this is exactly what I use are these guidelines books but I just wanted to give you an example of what this looks like it’s a clear purpose of clear goals and objectives for student learning and performance are communicated to students parents guardians and administrators inappropriate would be they should be busy happy and good with no emphasis on learning and what I want to emphasize here is there are two they’re two philosophies one philosophy is that we really need to educate our students our parents our Guardians administrators and the other is well we just need to get them moving out there just let them go let them go and the biggest philosophy that’s writing right now for physical education is in a structured environment we have to have the learning and performance goals that these kids are going after this is a very busy slide all I’m trying to show you here is that we have a checklist that looks at will a highly qualified or quality PE program would look like and you can see on number two it says what they should have a minimum of 150 minutes per week if they’re elementary and 225 minutes per week if they’re middle or high school or they have at least three class periods per week for all grades the entire school year that would be a quality program having one or the other and then having a certified physical education teacher for the quality program class size is definitely part of it and just another aside on this is that we as tapered which is the Texas Association of physical education health health recreation and dance which is the state organization for our shape America group we have an exemplary program checklist that teachers from across our state can submit to identify what type of exemplary program they are so there are different levels of exemplary and to truly be exemplary they would have to have no more I think it’s 35 to 1 even though that’s not the requirement across our state that’s to have an exemplary program so that kind of gives you an idea of what’s going on with what we think is exemplary versus what the state might require as an exemplary program but you can see here these are all different areas that talk about what would be quality you can see on number 9 looking at maximum participation you can see on number eight that we look at different assessments are we emphasizing health of evaluation from administrators to make sure that the programs are doing what they’re supposed to do and is their feedback for improvement of students peers and parents so that they know what they need to improve on or how they can improve to be better stewards as active participants you can see here

on the left I’ve got the two websites that shape America org and tapered org and both of those are great resource sites for where you can find the things that I’ve talked about today the nasty content standards the Texas content standards the guidelines the appropriate inappropriate practices and also some assessing national standards metrics they’ve got that on the shape America website as well and I hope you see the significance of a picture like this but at this putt time I can entertain questions I didn’t pull my contact information up here because I wasn’t sure if you’d want to contact me if you’d rather contact the tapered office but if if you do want to contact me directly I can get that information to you all and you can have that for further knowledge ok that’s right we don’t we don’t have any any questions here that have come through the web webinar ok but if people do have questions y’all can get top in those questions there for us to see so we could get those to miss rare we could address them right now while we’re on the on the webinar mr. a we’ve had several people request your contact info and fine go sirs say if we can top that in right now sure my email is d period are hea at teasing you dot edu phone phone is 88 1725 75 263 thank you Miss ray we greatly appreciate your time and effort on get with us today and showing us the presentation and talking about what quality physical education programs people should look like we appreciate it very much absolutely enjoy doing it thank you oh we got up we do have question okay what the question on your slide where you were highlighting the requirements and i believe it was number two where he talked about well no you just passed it where it was what a quality program should be in one of them talks about two hundred and twenty-five minutes and 100 yes ma’am right there and there’s some confusion there and what these what that list is that’s just your list of recommendations correct those are ya so that the national standards and so chef america and tapered which are to state national organizations they have said for you to have a quality PE program this would be one of the standards that you should be shooting for right and I think we’re confusion is coming in as people are interpreting their thinking that you extrapolated that from law when when actually that’s your recommendation and what law actually says is that students that are in elementary school should have a minimum of one hundred and thirty-five minutes 30 minutes a day or one hundred and thirty-five minutes for each school we and then for middle school students it’s actually four semesters of moderate to vigorous physical activity daily for 30 minutes a day or two hundred and twenty-five minutes per to school week so I think people were getting confused there what the recommendation was versus what statute is currently for the state of Texas that’s correct yes and so what Jesus stated is actually correct that the state is they do have different standards than what we put in the highly qualified or quality PE program just an excellent thanks for thanks for going back to that let this class I want any other questions Michelle bottle again miss Riley thank you very much for your time greatly appreciate it and if we have any other questions that come in through the webinar we can email those questions to you and you’ll have the contact information where you can respond to those individuals directly that sounds good thank you yes ma’am thank you okay have a good day oh all right in our last last presenter

today is is me not necessarily we’re saving the best for last i wouldn’t go as far as say that but on our october 15th webinar there were some information that i sharing using the report generator and how to get to that and look that information up to your finished graham results and we had quite a quite a bit of feedback my phone mustang ok you you Oh it’s not working yeah don’t let me down a bit you they’re now thank everybody can see my screen here in a second on home webinar but what uh well we had quite a few quite a few questions as far as what more was I talking about where does this exist how long has it existed where did it come from and so I just wanted to kind of take time to clarify those few questions and to get to the report generator of what you would need to do is pull up our our webpage the home page and go over here to the A to Z index on our homepage click aids the index and then once you’re there you’re going to click on the letter P as in Paul you and you’re going to find the FAI physical fitness assessment initiative and ‘he to the homepage for the actual physical fitness assessment initiative and if you scroll down to the bottom here here’s the information about getting started in the links that are on this page also can help you find how to get at ease down fitnessgram manual the procedures manual those kinds of things are all there but here’s the link right here for aggregate fitness results so if you click on this link takes you to the actual aggregate fitness data web page where we have the aggregate results posted by district in campus or I’m not sure 2007-2008 or by campus I think those are only by district but starting in 2009 so so 2008-2009 and previous up prior or after that we we have the results posted by campus and district and all that information goes all the way up to the 1213 academic year and for the 13-14 academic year that data will be available sometime late in January because we’ve actually entered into contractual agreement with mr. Cooper Institute and they are performing that data analysis that information will not be available until January of late January 2015 but here is the link for the report generate so you click on this link and this takes you to the report generator so you would actually select your school year and then your district campus grade and gender so so this you can dial this down by grade level and by gender and get very specific and then here in the report variables there are over 60 different report variables that you can run and if you hold the ctrl key down you can select multiple variables in and basically our our our IT folks here at the agency we would get so many calls every year coming in that this is actually the reason why they develop the report generator and in those 60 different report variables that are listed there or all reports that they were being requested for run queries on so now you have the power fingertips do that yourself and it does have the 13-14 academic you’re listed on here because we we have schools this past year submitting data be a two different after one of those with fitnessgram 10 web-based application and then if you use versions eight point six or nine point three of fitnessgram that data was actually submitted to the agency through the PFA I application so if you use the PFA I application in 1314 then you can you can go to you I

okay apparently we’re having technical difficulties for our PETM connection I apologize for that for webinar participants your you’re lucky you get to still hear my voice so the data for 1314 is there if you use the PFA I so we’ll just play with this so for 1314 academic year we’re going to select aldine isd and so then we’ll will say gray elementary and we want all third graders will go with boys and total number of students tested then click generate report and then it puts it in an Excel spreadsheet for you and pulls that information up if this antiquated computer will do it no it has to be one or the other that’s kind of if there’s limitations but you know and I don’t know what just happened it wouldn’t pull it up to me um we’ll try this again hit generate before open ah you yeah so it tells you school year campus ID grade mail and there were a total of 101 males that were that were tested so that that’s what the report generator does and again this is for 2013-14 it would only pertain to those schools that submitted via the PFA I system for those schools that submitted with fitnessgram 10 you would actually have to run your reports within fitnessgram 10 and then obviously anything prior to the 13-14 academic year was all submitted to the PFA I so all of the data will be there in just a couple of clarifications on PF PFA I’m fitnessgram 10 there’s there’s been numerous districts that have have chosen to upgrade the fitnessgram 10 and and they’ve done so but then I’m also approving a tremendous amount of ease account application of access for the PFA I application and I just wanted to make sure that we were all on the same page with if you have upgraded fitnessgram 10 in your districts Student Information Systems vendor data extract has been approved by Human Kinetics then there is not a need for your district to apply for a tease account or apply for access to the PFA I application once you have entered your data in the fitnessgram 10 if you’re using fitnessgram 10 this year then but that’s that’s all that you do once you enter in your data your data is there and and there’s no need to upload anything to the agency you have fitnessgram 10 and you do try to upload your data to the agency you’re going to get a some type of user error everytime that that you do it so I just wanted to make sure that I put that out there and try to get that clarifying for everybody and if you have any any other questions please don’t hesitate give me a call or shoot me an email beautiful my keys and with us that’s all information that I have Michelle do you have any anybody has to discussion users that you’re going to need contact human kinetics / difference on those these applications now believe that number is 1 800 7474 457 all right well thank you very much i apologize to our te 10 participants don’t know what after mobile connection but thank you free time you have any other questions or concerns you can email me yes I hey
