SC DHEC-FitnessGram

The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control recently completed a feasibility study and implementation plan to provide all public schools in South Carolina with the latest Web-based version of the FitnessGram software and training support from the President’s Youth Fitness Program.

Using FitnessGram software as a common platform to capture health-related fitness data across the state will allow South Carolina to collect body mass index (BMI) and fitness data on students. This data will support planning and implementation of evidence-based programs at the individual, local, school, district, and state levels. It will also help inform policy decisions and allocation of resources to areas of greatest need. Six school districts will be pilot testing the conversion to the Web-based software. The software will be available free as a part of this grant to additional school districts for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years.
