Cal200 v. Apple Valley USD, et al.
San Francisco Superior Court Case No. CPF-15514477
Education Code Section 51210(g) places a ministerial duty on all California school districts to adopt a course of study, beginning in Grade one and continuing through grade six, that includes physical education "for a total period of time of not less than 200 minutes each 10 school days, exclusive of recesses and lunch period". Education Code Section 51210 (g) also places a ministerial duty on all California school districts to provide students with not less than 200 minutes of physical education each 10 school days.
Filed in San Francisco Superior Court, the suit, Cal200 and Marc Babin v. Apple Valley Unified et al., charges the districts with failing to provide elementary school students with a minimum of 200 minutes of physical education instruction every 10 days, as required under the California Education Code.
The lawsuit also charges that the California Department of Education encouraged districts to falsify data.
The lawsuit used teacher schedules on district web sites as evidence that students were not receiving the PE as required.
