FY 2013 Awards

The U.S. Department of Education awarded 60 grants totaling nearly $32 million to Local Education Agencies (LEAs) and community-based organizations (CBOs) under the Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP).  Funding is intended to assist these entities with initiating, expanding, or enhancing physical education and nutrition education programs, including after-school programs, for students in kindergarten through 12th grades. The PEP program is aligned with and supports First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Active Schools initiative to get kids moving before, during and after school. 

All PEP grant recipients must implement programs that help students make progress toward meeting their state standards for physical education. In addition, these programs must undertake 1) instruction in healthy eating habits and good nutrition, and 2) physical fitness activities that include at least one of the following:

  • fitness education and assessment to help students understand, improve, or maintain their physical well-being
  • instruction in a variety of motor skills and physical activities designed to enhance the physical, mental, and social or emotional development of every student
  • development of and instruction in cognitive concepts about motor skills and physical fitness that support a lifelong healthy lifestyle
  • opportunities to develop positive social and cooperative skills through physical activity participation and
  • opportunities for professional development for physical education teachers to stay abreast of the latest research, issues, and trends in the field of physical education.

The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students manages the PEP grants and supports efforts to create safe schools, ensure the health and well-being of students, teach students good citizenship and character, respond to crises, and prevent drug and alcohol abuse.
