AL schools to replace President’s Challenge fitness test

(WTVM) -

The way your child is assessed in school is now changing.

Every Alabama student enrolled in physical education classes in second through twelfth grade will participate in the new Alabama physical fitness assessment.

We're told it's replacing the President's Challenge fitness test, which was adopted nearly 30 years ago.

The new assessment focuses on health-related fitness and measures aerobic cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance and flexibility.
