Why PEP Recipients Have Chosen SPARK:
  • SPARK WORKS. Over 45 publications demonstrate significant outcomes on students and teachers – including academic achievement and moderate to vigorous physical activity – a specified goal for PEP Grant assessment.
  • SPARK LASTS. A 2005 paper in Research Quarterly proved SPARK sustainability/ institutionalization.
  • SPARK physical education is the only nationally disseminated program that positively affects ALL of these student outcomes: Activity levels, fitness, sport skills, enjoyment, and academic achievement.
  • SPARK increases MVPA to over 50% of class-time (PEP reporting requirement) whether instructed by PE specialists or classroom teachers – and SPARK will consult with you on how to measure it.
  • SPARK has been honored as an Exemplary Program of the U.S. Dept. of Education; cited in the Surgeon General’s Report as a “School-based solution to our nation’s healthcare crisis;” earned a “Governor’s Commendation;” and was awarded “Gold” by the Cooper Institute. SPARK is the only program to earn “PE Gold” grades K-8.
  • SPARK offers programs that extend beyond their award-winning K-12 PE Programs, including Early Childhood, After School and Coordinated School Health Initiative (including Nutrition Education).
