    LAUSD Physical Education Teacher Itinerant Program (PETIP)

     

    The application process is now closed and schools selected for 2017-18 have been notified.
     
    PETIP provides funding for a credentialed physical education itinerant teacher, one day per week, at each participating elementary school for two years to provide embedded professional development for 6-8 designated elementary teachers during physical education instruction.  This model is designed to provide teachers with pedagogy and content knowledge needed to assist them in meeting the state mandated 200 minutes of physical education every 10 school days. Participating teachers are expected to gradually assume the role of providing physical education instruction with the assistance of the itinerant teacher as a coach, no later than the second semester of year 1. In addition, schools will receive appropriate physical education equipment. However, it will be the responsibility of the site administrator to allocate funds to replenish equipment as needed.

    The Specialized Foundation Riding for Focus Grant

     

    The Specialized Foundation

     

    The Specialized Foundation uses cycling as a tool for children to achieve academic, health and social success. Through investments in primary scientific medical research and school-based cycling programs, our mission is to increase accessibility to cycling to aid youth in personal development and education.

    It’s a pretty simple formula: kids + bikes = happier, more attentive students in the classroom, and for the past few years, The Specialized Foundation has been helping this happen. We’re dedicated to giving both schools and children the tools to achieve academic, health, and social success, and we want to encourage more schools to get involved.  Two great video links about The Specialized Foundation https://bit.ly/_TSF1    and the “2017 Riding For Focus School Programs” https://bit.ly/RidingForFocus1 .

    Join the movement and signup for our newsletter www.SpecializedFoundation.org and join as a school to be entered into our interested school database. The School Grant Program application period will open in February 2018.  To be notified when the application becomes available click here and select the blue "Notify Me" button.
