In May of 2008, Governor Culver signed the Healthy Kids Act. This act has three major parts: nutrition guidelines, CPR education and physical activity. Nutrition guidelines go into effect July 2012 and changes have been made in the vending machines and in the breakfast and lunch programs. All students are required to take a course leading to certification of Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). DC-G has integrated this training into the Health class, with CPR being taught to all freshmen and seniors that have not taken the training at this time. The final area is physical activity. All physically able students in grades K-5 are required to engage in physical activity for a minimum of thirty minutes per day. This requirement will be met with recess and PE. All physically able students in grades six through twelve shall be required to engage in a physical activity for a minimum of one hundred twenty minutes per week. This requirement can be met through PE and school sponsored activities that involve physical activity, as well as non-school sponsored activities, including a home exercise program. All students in grades 6-12 are required to complete a physical activity contract and return to the school stating other activities in which the student is involved.
