A vision statement conjures up a similar picture for all members of the group of the destination of the group’s work together. For example, CDC’s vision statement “24-7: Saving Lives, Protecting People” focuses on working 24/7 to protect America from health, safety, and security threats. An example of a CSPAP vision statement could be “Active Students. Active School.”
What is the purpose of a CSPAP?
The purpose of a Comprehensive School Physical Activity Program is to provide a variety of physical activity opportunities to students before, during, and after the school day to increase their level of physical activity. The hope is for schools to create a sustainable process to support physical activity in schools that addresses all five components of CSPAP.
What are examples of potential CSPAP goals?
Some examples of goal statements are:
Increase opportunities during the school day to increase moderate to vigorous physical activities for students, staff, and community.
Improve the school physical activity environment.
Increase the number of students who participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity daily.
How can specific objectives be written?
Specific objectives help set priorities and targets for progress. Using the acronym SMART helps ensure objectives are thorough:
Specific: Who (e.g., student population) and what (e.g., action or activity)?
Measureable: How much change is expected as a result of your CSPAP?
Achievable: Can this be realistically accomplished, given current resources and constraints?
Realistic: Is it possible to achieve this objective?
Time-phased: When will it be accomplished?
What is an example of a CSPAP objective?
If the goal is to increase the number of students who participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity daily, an example objective might be: “By the end of year one, 90% of students in grades K-5 will use a daily log to record their moderate to vigorous physical activity.” This statement shows:
The results to be achieved: students will record physical activity;
