Physical Fitness Testing
Every year in the Spring every 5th and 7th grade student is tested for their physical fitness. This Physical Fitness Testing (PFT) gathers fitness data from all CA school districts in six fitness areas: Aerobic Capacity, Body Composition, Abdominal Strength, Trunk Extensor Strength, Upper Body Strength, and Flexibility. The BSD 5th and 7th grade students PFT results, which can be queried on CDE's DataQuest website along with the County and State results, have shown steady positive improvements over the past several years. Looking at the BSD PFT Trends shows that the BSD students consistently ranked above County and State averages. Way to go students and PE teachers!
