CENTER FOR SPORT PSYCHOLOGY PARTNERS WITH THE DENTON INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT (DISD)

Denton ISD Logo

The Center for Sport Psychology has entered into a long-term partnership with the DISD to improve the physical health, psychological well-being, academic performance and eating behaviors of middle school boys and girls. The Center staff is collaborating with the physical education teachers at each middle school to assist them in implementing the state-mandated fitness testing using the FITNESSGRAM (as required by Senate Bill 530), and to help them create an environment that supports students being more physically active and fit. In addition, our staff is working to follow the children over time to determine how fitness and activity levels can lead to improvements in students' performances in school and their general well-being.
