The Presidential Youth Fitness Program and its partners have released a free physical educator resource guide, including information for home schools.
Currently, the application period is open for Presidential Youth Fitness Program funding for public and private schools that serve students in grades four and higher, and employ certified physical educators full time or part time. Schools serving only preK/K and only grades K-3 are not eligible. The application is available online only, in January, at http://www.pyfp.org/funding/apply. Funding will cover this school year and the following two school years. Check to see if your district is eligible: http://www.pyfp.org/doc/pyfp-checklist.pdf. The program partners offer other free resources at http://www.pyfp.org/professional-development/free-materials.shtml.
