PFT: Physical Fitness Testing

PFT: Physical Fitness Testing

The physical fitness test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity. Students in grades five, seven, and nine take the fitness test. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents.
The Governor's Office issued Executive Order (EO) N-56-20 ( that included a waiver of the Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for the 2019-20 school year. Specifically, the EO stated the following: Education Code section 60800, requiring each LEA maintaining any of grades 5, 7, and 9 to administer a physical fitness performance test to each student in those grades, and Education Code sections 33352(b)(4) and (5), requiring the California Department of Education to collect data regarding the administration of the physical fitness test, are waived for the 2019-20 school year.
