Secondary Schools – Power Up for 30

Middle School Power Up for 30 is a pilot initiative supported by Georgia Shape and the Georgia Departments of Public Health and Education funded through Centene Foundation for Quality Healthcare and Peachstate Health Plan. The initiative focuses on integrating at least 30 minutes of physical activity throughout the school day through strategies, resources and professional development based on the CDC’s Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program (CSPAP). The pilot, modeled on the success of the elementary school Power Up for 30 efforts, includes pioneering schools from Carrollton City, Cobb County, DeKalb County, Gwinnett County, Hall County, Henry County and Newton County School Districts. These schools’ efforts and accomplishments will provide valuable feedback to guide development of strategies, trainings, resources, and recognition in preparations for a statewide launch of Power Up for 30 in middle schools.

Interested school, please inquire for more information at Georgia.Shape@dph.ga.gov.
