Health and Physical Education

Ashley Chapple

Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics

Health and Physical Education are two areas of study that address the needs of the whole child. Students will learn skills to make healthy choices about their social, emotional, physical and mental well-being. Students will receive an education that will help them to obtain and maintain a healthy life-style. 

All students in the City School District of Albany participate in the FitnessGram assessment to test and track students’ physical fitness in the health related fitness areas of cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, muscular strength, and muscular endurance.
