Tom Cronan Bill

On May 21, 2018 Governor Haslam signed into law the bill that states, “…each student in elementary school will participate in a physical education class that meets 2 times per week.  The total physical education class time each school week shall be no less than 60 minutes.  The class shall be taught by a licensed teacher with an endorsement in physical education or by a specialist in physical education.”

  • In summary every child in elementary school in Tennessee will now receive 2 days per week of instructional physical education.
  • Implementation of the Tom Cronan Bill for Elementary Physical Education begins in July of 2019, the beginning of the 2019-20 school year.
