Contact Anchorage School District
The ASD administration and school board need to understand that the students, parents, teachers and community members are concerned about recess and lunch time. They need to understand how these issues are impacting our students and school and home throughout the district. Your personal stories can make the most difference in moving the needle. Please contact them.

SB200 attempted to promote physical activity in our schools (90% of the CDC’s recommended 60 minutes a day). The Physical Activity in Schools Law states that school districts shall establish guidelines to provide opportunities for 54 minutes of physical activity each full school day for students in grades K-8. The 54 minutes may include a combination of physical education, recess, school-wide activities and in-classroom activity. Let your state representatives know you would like to see SB200 be more binding by requiring schools to not just have policies in place but to enforce those policies so that the intent of the law is met equally across the state.
