Physical Education




    The vision of the Physical Education Programs Office is to support physical educators in providing high quality, intentional instruction that equips each student with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to plan, carryout, evaluate, and adjust their physical activity endeavors and response across their lifespan.*

    Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

    There have been a few questions on the topic of the required Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for grades 5, 7, & 9 (Fitnessgram assessment). 

    From the Office of Data & Accountability: 

    We understand schools cannot continue to administer the PFT, but schools should enter PFT results into MiSiS (PFT Mass Entry Screen) for students that were tested prior to the school closures on March 13th.


    Regarding Elementary Physical Education Minute Certification:

    The California Department of Education has informed us that the District should provide physical education as part of distance learning. Please refer to the Continuity of Learning section of this website: and LAUSD Elementary Schoology group for resources to support instruction in physical education through distance learning.
