POWER UP FOR 30 A SUCCESS IN GEORGIA
Power Up for 30 Overview: Power Up for 30 is a statewide initiative supported by the Georgia Departments of Public Health (DPH) and Education (DOE) to increase physical activity before, during and after the school day in schools across the state. Using the Comprehensive School PA Program Model (CSPAP) promoted by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, school staff learn how to integrate an additional 30 minutes or more of physical activity before, during, and/or after school. Since 2013, HealthMPowers has served as the training partner for this initiative. To date, 881 elementary schools have engaged in Power Up for 30, resulting in 1,898 teachers and administrators receiving direct professional development and more than 467,626 Georgia elementary school students impacted.
