Legislative Update!


The Tennessee House of Representatives unanimously passed House Bill 372 by Rep. Roger Kane (R-Knoxville) known as the “Tom Cronan Physical Education Act” on Monday, April 23. This legislation sets a minimum requirement of 60 minutes per week for physical education in elementary schools across the state and goes into effect July 1, 2019.  

The mission of the Tennessee Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance web site is to provide our members and visitors with information about the association, its members and their contributions to improving the lives of all those they can reach.

Ms. Andrea Burton is the Executive Director of TAHPERD. She received her Bachelor of Science degree with a concentration in dietetics, from Middle Tennessee State University in 2010.  In July of 2011, she became the Rutherford County Schools Coordinated School Health Assistant where she facilitates health screenings for the district. Andrea is very excited to serve as the new Executive Director for TAHPERD, she is here to listen, assist, and help you in any way possible.
