Programs: Physical activity is a critical piece in combating the current childhood obesity epidemic. A healthy child who is physically active will be better able to come to school ready to learn. Research shows that students participating in daily physical activity exhibit better attendance, a more positive attitude towards school, and superior academic performance. CSBA and CPL propose upon their partnership and utilize their local and statewide leadership, credibility and influence to initiate and support systemic change in school districts across California towards increasing youth physical activity and improving physical education
