AUSTIN, TX — Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently signed Senate Bill 530 requiring more physical fitness for children in third through 12th grades. The bill requires fitness evaluations to be conducted on the children each year and sent to the Texas Education Agency.

The bill requires middle school students to double their physical education classes from two semesters to four throughout middle school, beginning in the 2008-2009 school year. Students can also fulfill these requirements through local sports leagues.
