What is Georgia SHAPE?

The Georgia Student Health and Physical Education (SHAPE) Act was passed in the 2009 Georgia legislative session, and is now Official Code of Georgia 20-2-777.

Beginning in the 2011-2012 school year, the law requires each local school district to conduct an annual fitness assessment program for all students in grades 1 - 12 enrolled in Georgia public school physical education classes taught by certified physical education teachers.
