The more than $2.4 million project is funded by San Diego Unified School District's Proposition Z bond measure and matching funds from a state Proposition ​1D grant.​ Construction began in July and is expected to be completed in spring 2017.

Media Advisory - Mission Readiness, San Diego Unified Host Physical Activity Demonstration Promoting Student Health

Media Advisory from San Diego Unified School District, Nov. 30, 2016

 

Mission Readiness, San Diego Unified Host Physical Activity Demonstration Promoting Student Health

 

WHO: Participants available for interviews:

- Rear Admiral (Ret.) James Rodman, U.S. Navy & Mission: Readiness member

- Sharon Whitehurst-Payne, San Diego USD Board Member

- Lynn Barnes-Wallace, San Diego USD Physical Education and Health Resource Teacher

- Mr. Don Whisman, Principal of Franklin Elementary School

 

WHAT: Education, community, and military leaders will gather Thursday, December 1, to highlight the importance of increasing physical activity during the school day. In California and across the U.S., more than one-third of children and adolescents are classified as being overweight or obese. Further, obesity has become the leading medical disqualifier for military service.

 

Mission: Readiness in partnership with San Diego Unified School District will feature physical activity best practices that are not only effective at getting kids active, but can also help them concentrate and perform better in the classroom.

 

Officials from the San Diego Unified School District will highlight IMPACT (Increasing Movement and Physical Activity in Class Time), a physical education program designed to keep local elementary students moving despite the lack of physical education classes in underserved San Diego schools. Increasing physical activity is just one example of how San Diego Unified is working to improve the health of all students. The District is also providing healthy school food, trauma-informed care, and other services to make health happen at San Diego Unified.

 

WHEN:          Thursday, December 1, 2016

9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. PST

 

WHERE:        Franklin Elementary School, 4481 Copeland Ave, 92116

 

CONTACT:    For more information or to set up an interview, contact –

- Meghan Moroney: 415-450-1913 or mmoroney@missionreadiness.org

- Jennifer Cornelius Rodriguez: 619-847-6029 or  jcornelius@sandi.net

 

ABOUT: Mission: Readiness is the national security nonprofit organization of over 650 retired admirals, generals, and other retired senior military leaders calling for smart investments in America’s children. It is a part of Council for a Strong America, the umbrella nonprofit for five membership organizations comprising the unique and powerful voices of retired military, business, law enforcement, faith and sports, working together to prepare young Americans for success in school and in life.

 

San Diego Unified School District serves more than 130,000 students in pre-school through grade 12 and is the second largest district in California. The student population is extremely diverse, representing more than 15 ethnic groups and more than 60 languages and dialects. San Diego Unified School District is proud to call itself one of the top large urban school districts in the United States. Measures include its top scores on state and national tests, its leadership in areas such as technology, curriculum, neighborhood and specialty schools, career-technical education and food services. Its graduates include Hall of Fame sports stars, along with some of the nation's top scientists, writers and leaders.
