11/5/2021 - PFT Data Submission is required for SY 21-22

Here is the latest information from the CDE on PFT: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ta/tg/pf/

The 2021–22 Physical Fitness Test (PFT) has not been suspended. Local educational agencies (LEAs) will be required to administer the PFT during one of these months in 2022: February, March, April, or May. The CDE, along with external partners, is working to prepare additional instructions on the PFT. More information and instructions will be provided as they become available.

The 2019–20 and 2020–21 PFTs were suspended; makeup testing is not required. The PFT exemptions for students who did not take the test in grade nine (those current tenth and eleventh grade students) are limited to those exemptions identified in the California Education Code sections 51241 and 51242. An exemption based on the pupil satisfactorily meeting five of the six standards of PFT is not available for these particular students.

Hi Jan,

Will our extract be updated to contain the required 'participated'  information? And/or are we creating any sort of file that is compliant with the upload to the SARCs?   CDE will not be collecting the data.

Agreed. I need this info as well.

Thank you

You can print the Physical Fitness Test Analysis Report to get the numbers of students who participated in testing. The only thing to be reported to SARC is the participation numbers/percentages for each grade level. The actual raw test data only needs to be given to the student (mile run time, pullups completed, etc.). There is no need to calculate/report any pass rates for any tests.
