In California, elementary schools are required to provide a minimum of 200 PE minutes every 10 school days for students in grades 1- 6 [1,2]. A recent court judgment in California also mandates that schools monitor, track and report compliance with the 200 minute minimum for 3 years. Our custom PowerSchool PE time tracker application integrates directly into PowerSchool, allowing an easy data collection method for teachers, and allows your district to be legally compliant.
Tracking California State Required Elementary P.E. Minutes
To help schools and district comply with the regulations, CTS has developed a solution to enter, track and publicly report P.E. minutes directly in PowerSchool. In addition, districts can display current PE time, at the teacher and/or school level, on public forums such as the district website to demonstrate compliance.
Teachers & Administrators
Each teacher that must track PE minutes enters his/her time directly in PowerTeacher. Teachers know they must enter time for each class that has an active ‘Basketball’ icon.
Administrators can then monitor teacher data entry in PowerSchool, following up with teachers directly or editing as necessary.
For districts that want to publicly display current PE minutes, CTS has created a script to display PE minutes by school and/or teacher which can be added to your website. See how one California district using CTS’s solution currently displays PE minutes (select ‘Elementary PE Time Report’ in the left hand menu).
