2022 Program Monitoring Physical Education - Legislative Report

Executive summary of the 2022 Program Monitoring of Physical Education Report to the Legislature.

California Department of Education
Report to the Governor, Legislature, and the Legislative Analyst’s Office: Program Monitoring of Physical Education

Executive Summary

This report is required by California Education Code (EC) Section 33352(c), which summarizes the data collected through compliance of the monitoring of physical education (PE) as described in EC Section 33352(b). The report indicates the extent to which each school within the jurisdiction of a school district or County Office of Education aligns with the nine areas of compliance, as applicable, to the school.

For the 2021–22 school year, 23 local educational agencies (LEAs) received telemonitoring via Zoom. This monitoring resulted in 27 findings of noncompliance among the LEAs that were selected for review. Three LEAs remain in the process of demonstrating compliance.

The administration of the physical fitness test (PFT) and the required data collection done by the California Department of Education (CDE) resumed for the 2021–22 school year. The PFT had been suspended as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and state and local guidelines. You will find more detailed information on the CDE PFT web page.

You can find this report on the CDE PE web page.
