Health and Physical Education Consulting

If you are on this page, chances are you already understand the importance and impact of quality physical education and health programs in schools. We here at TCI believe that quality physical education and health programs can change the culture of a school and put children on the right path to leading a healthy and productive life. There has also been substantial research indicating the positive correlation between academics, brain function and physical activity. We at TCI feel that Physical Education and movement can no longer be categorized as a "special subject". The new Every Student Succeeds Act has defined a "well rounded" education as the standard for schools with physical education and health programs standing on equal ground with core academic subjects. When school districts make their plans for ESSA, it is imperative that quality health and PE be included. Quality physical education and health programs, taught by qualified individuals, will promote health and physical literacy. Creating a learning environment that engages the body, mind and spirit can have a tremendous positive influence on students and help fight rising obesity rates and sedentary lifestyles. We must make drastic changes NOW for the well being of our communities, and nation. Funding will be available for Health and PE to get the much needed support they deserve. We can advise and support you on the road to providing the very best for your school community.
