Physical education (P.E.) is a key aspect of inclusive learning; due to a number of factors, many elementary schools have not been able to sufficiently provide P.E. programs. For this Capstone Project, the researcher examined how underfunded schools can integrate online-based P.E. programs into the curriculum. Through a literature review and interviews with school staff, the researcher found a significant need for P.E. in low-socioeconomic elementary schools. Despite the existence of online-based physical education programs that require little to no funding, many staff from underfunded schools do not know about these types of readily available resources. The literature review and interviews informed an action project to address this issue. By compiling multiple resources related to online P.E. and making this information readily available to school staff, the researcher aimed to help create opportunities for a more active lifestyle for students from under resourced schools.
