Childhood Obesity: Georgia is ranked second in youth obesity for ages 10 - 17! Georgia is one of three states committed to boosting the health and wellness of all students through a focus on the specific fitness measures most closely related to classroom performance and healthcare costs.  SHAPE, the Student Health and Physical Education program, was passed in the 2009 Georgia legislative session and is now the Official Code of Georgia 20-2-777. The law requires each local school district to conduct an annual fitness assessment program for all students in grades 1 - 12 in physical education classes taught by a certified teacher. A computerized "Fitnessgram" report is generated with each student's results, and it is shared with parents in order to open a dialogue about the importance of health and fitness.
