The Cobb Coordinated School Physical Activity Program (CCSPAP) educates youth in the knowledge and application of skills learned and also mobilizes them to apply what they have learned in adopting a healthy lifestyle.
Research done in Cobb has shown students who are more physically active, do better academically, have fewer discipline referrals, and attend school more regularly.
The CCSPAP is a multi-component approach by which all Cobb schools use opportunities for students to be physically active throughout the school day in order to meet the district physical activity recommendations.
The CCSPAP reflects strong coordination and synergy across all of its five components: physical education as the foundation, physical activity during school, physical activity before and after school, staff involvement, and family and community engagement. At the heart of our new framework, physical education provides youth with the fundamental education and skills needed to make decisions regarding physical activity.
