AMERICAN FORK -- Alpine School District is getting more than $700,000 in federal money over the next three years to improve its P.E. programs.
The grant announced this month comes from the federal Department of Education's Carol M. White Physical Education Program, which provides funds for equipment and support for P.E. programs. The money can't be used for teacher salaries.
Funds will be used to train P.E. specialists and one teacher from each grade level at each elementary school in the American Fork-based district.
Alpine received a similar grant in 2006. The $400,000 was used to expand existing P.E. programs at high schools.
