Mission Statement

The Massachusetts Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Dance (MAHPERD) is a non-profit organization for professionals and students dedicated to promoting healthy active lifestyles; advocating for quality programs; providing quality professional development opportunities; promoting leadership in each of the disciplines; recognizing outstanding professionals and quality programs; supporting research initiative and disseminating research findings. MAHPERD promotes liaisons with allied organizations and memberships in Eastern District Association (EDA) and Shape America

Background Statement

Our association has been in existence since 1929. MAHPERD’s purpose is to serve K-12 public school students, teachers, administrators of health, physical education recreation and dance through ensuring quality programming in all aspects of the allied fields. There are several avenues in which we serve: (1) We carefully plan quality professional development opportunities such as meetings, conferences and workshops for all teachers which provide content knowledge and implementation strategies to utilize in their classrooms for all students. (2) We disseminate the latest cutting-edge research in order to be on the forefront of educational needs for students, teachers and administrators. We advocate for high quality resources for our members and also to expand equality programming within the public schools. We promote and advance quality programming by following the National Standards for Health, Physical Education, and Dance as well as the three pillars of the National Parks and Recreation Association. (3) We have numerous organizations that we have partnered with in order to support and facilitate healthy active lifestyles in the state of Massachusetts.

Impact Statement

(1) We are in the 3rd phase of gathering physical education data with Interactive Health Technologies (IHT) to educate our Department of Education and administrators in the public schools who are key decision makers in school curricula. Through IHT’s software, we have been able to assess students in PE Metrics (skill development) and in social and emotional Learning (SEL). This technology in data collection connects fitness and health, social-emotional learning and academics, empowers students, parents, and schools to easily generate reports and track daily activity, K-12. The results of MA districts that have collected data seeks to improve their own program while uniting statewide data collection. Teachers can instantly collect, store and report any assessment, automate cardio tests, daily grading and effortlessly send reports with the touch of a finger. This data will give us a complete snapshot of physical literacy in Massachusetts. We are the only organization that is collecting data of this type in our state. (2) We are a leader in professional development for the allied fields. We have consecutively grown in membership the past five years. We plan professional development opportunities that bring quality speakers internationally, nationally, regionally and statewide for our annual convention, workshops, dance conference, adapted physical education conference and have just this past year, added a School Health Education Conference in which the entire country was/is invited. (3) We have started developing a Guidance Document in health/physical education for our members that reflects best practices, assessments and National Standards and Outcomes in Health and Physical Education.

Needs Statement

1) Continue funding for programming of professional development opportunities for teachers and professionals. We would like to secure funding to continue to obtain viable speakers in the allied fields. (2) In our third phase with Interactive Health Technologies, assessing for physical literacy, teachers need heart rate monitors and software to obtain needed state-wide data. (3) Develop resources and materials for our health, physical education, recreation and dance members to support teachers and professionals in these fields. Ideas have involved printing costs, marketing and distribution, all to which we are limited because of budget constraints. (4) Be able to partner with state-wide Recreation Departments to provide communities with training workshops for coaches in youth sport recreational activities. We are working on Youth Sport Manuals and want to print and give these out at all trainings. Financial support would be needed for this project. (5) In our quest for 21st Century Learning, funding is needed to become part of a technological platform in which our members and professionals across the country, could take courses or look at live webinars. Presently, we are looking at various platforms to utilize and be cost-effective as well.

CEO Statement

At MAHPERD, everything we do is based on our belief that children and young adults, given the right tools, direction and support, can be empowered to develop the skills, knowledge and habits necessary to self-manage their health and fitness, for life.

Our challenge as an organization and as a state is to understand that the American education system is undergoing a fundamental change that is threating this belief. Reduced funding and an increased pressure to deliver results have created a new reality that has forced administrators to make tough programming choices. In many cases this has led to a significant cutback in teachers and programming deemed non-essential to improving academic performance. Quite often physical education has become an easy target in a misplaced effort to improve a school’s academic results.

Fortunately, on-going brain research and data collection efforts such as our MA initiative in which we are hoping to expand with this grant, have revealed the significant role of movement in brain development and the important fact that healthy, active children are more focused and ready to learn. Research has also shown that one of the best paths to self-empowerment is through a process of personalized learning in which each student takes ownership of their personal health and fitness journey by setting and managing their individual health, fitness and activity goals and are continuously supported by teachers and parents.

At MAHPERD, we believe a strategic use of PE, quality professional development for teachers, annual workshops and data collection efforts can strengthen and unify the professional and the state, and are showing positive results to significantly improve the learning process.

Led by MAHPERD’s efforts and vision, MA has laid the foundation to galvanize teachers and administrators helped increase student empowerment and helped strengthen the parent-school-community network, all by measuring the impact of our state’s approach to quality physical education in order to maximize student growth.

Board Chair Statement

I have been involved with MAHPERD for over 25 years. As a young teacher I was first involved by attending MAHPERD conferences. These were great learning opportunities for a young teacher. These conferences provide members quality professional development. Through attending these conferences I then was encouraged to become a presenter. Later, I volunteered to be on various MAHPERD committees and then held several different positions on the board. If it wasn’t for the dedicated people in this organization I wouldn’t have taken on leadership roles serving on the board. This year I have the honor of being President, and I hold this position today because I believe in this organization. Many people volunteer countless hours to serve on the board, assist in planning professional development opportunities, serve on committees and so much more. This organization listens to their members and welcomes their feedback. I’m proud of what our organization accomplishes for quality physical education and health and programs. MAHPERD has teamed up with IHT to develop assessments for physical education teachers to assess standards and outcomes. This collaboration has been going on for two years. The teachers involved are documenting student growth in regards to student learning in physical education programs. One of the highlights is that the assessment includes social emotional learning (SEL). There’s not a lot of documented evidence regarding SEL outcomes, so this project allows us to see the impact our teaching has on student learning. One of our goals is to educate Administrators about the importance of Physical Education and Health in our public schools. Our advocacy team volunteered to put together a PowerPoint presentation to share with administrators. Providing professional development opportunities is also a priority. We have annual conferences on physical education, health, adapted PE, leadership and dance. We are now in the process of developing a tech platform that will provide innovative CEU’s. I have always been impressed with the leadership of our board. I am looking forward to being President and working with our dedicated and hardworking board to continue the initiatives I have mentioned above. I also look forward to seeing what the future holds for our organization in promoting quality physical education and health classes for the students of Massachusetts.

Adapted Physical Education Conference

Meeting the needs of all K-12 students in our physical education programs is a necessity, especially if students are on Individual Education Plans (IEP's) and are mentally or physically challenged.  MAHPERD has established a conference specifically designed for the Adapted Physical Educator.  Our sessions are based on the needs of the professionals in the field.  Examples of sessions may include but not limited to content on autism awareness/strategies in the PE classroom,  adaptations of physical education equipment, conducting evaluations on student needs, etc. to name just a few. All New England states are invited and do participate.
Budget  $7,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other
Population Served Adults
Program Short-Term Success  Content knowledge of any aspect in adapted physical education is shared and presenters and participants readily converse and explore avenues  for student success in both the adapted physical education and inclusion within the physical education settings.
Program Long-Term Success  Ultimately, we want to give our teacher professionals in adapted physical education the tools and the knowledge to serve their K-12 students who have special needs.  We strive for full inclusion in  the typical physical education classroom and assisting adapted physical educators  in this journey is one of the goals of this conference.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  At the Adapted PE Conference last year, we hosted it at a recreational facility that specializes in autism.  Many adapted PE teachers did not know that this existed so they told parents of students about it and made connections for these parents to utilize the site and professionals as a resource.

Annual State Convention

We offer over 120 programs/sessions in health, physical education, recreation and dance at this two day annual convention.  We disseminate resources, research findings and are able to secure speakers at the international, national, regional and state levels.
Budget  $35,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other
Population Served Adults
Program Short-Term Success  The programs/sessions we offer at our two-day Annual Convention have made quite a positive impact on the planning, implementation and evaluation of effective health and physical education programs in the K-12 public and private schools for all students. Many professionals from all over New England attend our conference as we have been established for quite some time. Teachers and administrators have commented on the professional networking and session content knowledge they have taken back with them to their schools and have had success within their own programs.
Program Long-Term Success  Ultimately, we want our teacher professionals and administrators to know that they have the best in professional development for the allied fields.  We send out surveys and evaluations of this event and ask for member feedback.  Once we have that feedback, we try and obtain what is necessary and who is necessary as far as speakers  and resources for our members to gain more knowledge in the areas that they made need assistance with in with their K-12 health and physical education programs.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  Many professionals have needed assistance with collecting data for their physical education programs and this was voiced at a Business Meeting at the Annual Convention four years ago. MAHPERD sought out Interactive Health Technologies (IHT) and now in partnership with them, has initiated a state-wide assessment program using their technology.  The results have been outstanding to this point as teachers are gathering data and letting their administrators know that their district is cutting-edge being involved with this initiative.  This in turn, gains support from administrators and the data has been used as an educational tool to improve the physical education program.

MAHPERD Statewide Data Collection

The MAHPERD Statewide Data Collection provides physical educators and their administrators with the customizable data collection and reporting software, wearable technology and professional development that will document the impact of their programming. The key goals of the program are to 1) Establish a reproducible software introduction and data collection process by working in collaboration and in phases with select teachers representing a select number of Massachusetts School Districts. 2) Provide a software license at no cost to participating members, 3) Provide teachers the tools, training and resources to measure the effectiveness of their overall program (which includes the effectiveness of PE, the integration of external programs like BOKS, parent engagement, etc) and how their overall program impacts academic, attendance and behavior performance for each student. 4) Gather input from the select teacher group as they introduce the software into their schools through their classroom experience, identifying the best ways to integrate the data collection and reporting process and blue printing a system that can be expanded within each district.

Once the training and implementation process is established and demonstrated to be effective the executive team meets to develop the scalability and success within that district and for the statewide strategy. A research component is put in place to validate and strengthen data collection efforts and strategy. We also actively bring together collaborative partnerships to grow and strengthen the program.

Program Short-Term Success 

The primary goal of the MAHPERD Statewide Data Collection is to demonstrate the association between the improvement childhood health and fitness with a variety of academic, affective and physical variables. To ensure a rigorous design of the project, as well as creating a clear, valid assessment of the project, it was critical that an evaluation program be designed to address the goals of the project. The evaluation program was created using best practices in research in order to obtain a valid and reliable set of data that best captures the variables of interest and provides answers within the context of previous research undertaken in related areas. It was also important to address teacher reaction to, and the use of, the data collection technology as part of the program.  Near term achievements are to provide a tool and the proper resources that produce objective, accurate data that can drive the conversation of what to assess for individual teachers and the state collectively.  This has already become the catalyst to help implement effective change and ensures physical educators deliver quality curriculum that achieves programming excellence. The program also strives to demonstrate the association between improved student fitness and well-being and a variety of academic, affective, and social variables. We are proud the program has quickly streamlined teacher workloads to allow teachers to focus on individual instruction with a dramatic reduction in administrative tasks. Finally, near term achievements have already seen the acceleration of current efforts to improve the overall physical education model in schools throughout the state, assisting districts in moving toward full implementation of a comprehensive physical activity program that strengthens academic achievement.

Program Long-Term Success 

Our long-term success with the data collection and key metrics will be to help validate the allocation of newly available Title I, (low income schools/students) Title II (professional development), and Title IV (safe and healthy students) funding for physical and health education. We also want to enhance MAHPERD’s value to our current members through a more focused and aligned purpose, improved communication and more influential advocacy efforts. This program will encourage and incentivize non-members to join MAHPERD which will result in increased membership retention so that MAHPERD’s important efforts reach and impact more teachers throughout the state. Through funding, we plan to grow the program so that it is available and benefits all active MAHPERD members. Long-term, we are focused on having the majority of all school districts statewide involved in MAHPERD and be part of the statewide data collection program in one or multiple schools within each district. We also want to bring together collaborative partnerships to grow and strengthen the program overtime.

Program Success Monitored By 

The IHT Spirit System provides physical educators, their administrators, and MAHPERD with the customizable data collection and reporting software, wrist-based wearable technology, and ongoing training and customer support that can document the impact of programming, leadership, advocacy and the substantiation and allocation of increased funding opportunities. The IHT Spirit System is simple and user-friendly. It makes it easy to capture data while providing various customized reports from the individual student to data collection involving multiple school systems and districts throughout the state. Our partnership solution also helps increase and sustain MAHPERD’s membership, provide ongoing revenue streams for MAHPERD, unite all stakeholders and strengthen the PE profession overall.

At MAHPERD, we believe the only way to achieve this type of excellence is through the implementation of a measurement-based strategy that focuses on the vision of this program. The IHT Spirit System is the only technology solution available that can enable this vision to become a reality in all aspects. The regular evaluation of this program serves to strengthen or modify the design of the overall program. In addition, the data collection and analysis allow for the examination of the impact of regular physical education and physical activity on student variables related to academic performance, affective behavior and social behavior.

A secondary goal in our program success is to continually pay attention to the individual, as well as the overall district improvements, as success will be measured on both improvements. Our control groups will accurately compare the effects of students utilizing heart rate monitors and involved in the data collection program against those who are not.

We also concurrently evaluate whether the implementation plan was executed properly in the schools and if there are any program improvements that might be beneficial prior to launching a larger scale project.

We look at whether the program is operating as effectively as it should be and whether students, teachers, administrators and families are engaged and satisfied with the program. To this end, questionnaires/surveys, will be given to parents, teachers, students and administrators. They will be conducted in the fall, mid-year and end of the academic year to provide feedback and assessment in all stages of the pilot and from all parties involved.

Examples of Program Success 

When the Massachusetts Department of Education implemented District Determined Measures (DDMs) in 2015, which is the state’s mandatory evaluation system assessing each teacher’s impact on student learning, MAHPERD saw this challenge as a great opportunity to further prove the effectiveness and impact of health and physical education programs in schools.

By partnering with IHT, MAHPERD worked with teachers from across the state to create grade level outcomes from K-12. They also are collecting social-emotional metrics from K-12. Each teacher uses the Spirit System to collect pre and post assessments each semester, that are then rolled up to a state level. This aggregate, unified data collection is allowing teachers and districts to meet the state regulatory compliance mandates, while also providing teachers a flexible, customizable data collection instrument for their own unique data collection needs.

After a successful 2016 pilot year involving 2,000 elementary school-aged children in grades 1-5 in 10 diverse districts, in January 2017, MAHPERD expanded Phase II to middle and high school teachers and connected physical fitness with social and emotional learning components. Currently over 150 new teachers in 40 different school districts are participating.

During this spring semester each Physical Educator is assessing both grade level outcomes based on the National PE Standards and a monthly social-emotional component. Data is collected in the IHT Spirit software.

MAHPERD partnered with Springfield College and Professor Liz Mullin to conduct research on the initial year's pilot and data collection. Prof. Mullin began with the IRB process so MAHPERD could correlate fitness data and scores with academics, attendance and affective correlations. Research is ongoing.

MAHPERD/SHAPE America/American Heart Association-Jump Rope for Heart

Our state and national association have been partnered for 40 years with the American Heart Association in the Jump Rope for Heart Program which engages K-12 students in physical activity and imparts knowledge about healthy hearts.  Each year, several of our teachers in our association plan and organize Jump Rope for Heart events to help gain  donations from students and their families for the American Heart Association.  These donations assist with finding cures for all types of heart disease and are given to the American Heart Association by students/family members who jump rope at various times for one day at school events.
Budget  $2,000.00
Category  Education, General/Other
Population Served K-12 (5-19 years)
Program Short-Term Success  Many have benefited from this program as students have learned how essential it is to take care of their hearts by being physically active; students have intrinsically benefited from helping others with heart disease,  and students, family and community members have gained knowledge of heart disease and how to support by financial giving.  
Program Long-Term Success  Education of heart disease is a key factor in this program and MAHPERD entirely supports it and the partnership with SHAPE America and the American Heart Association.  Any program that seeks to educate the school community on healthy physically active lifestyles is a most positive factor, especially since our teachers are leading and organizing them with our K-12 students.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  One of our school districts raised over 1 million dollars from their Jump Rope for Heart event and had all their middle school students going to parents and the school community to seek donations to help others.  The students in turn, jumped rope for a whole day at various times and raised all this money for heart disease and research. It was phenomenal and their school gained state, regional and national recognition for their efforts. A great community event!

School Health Education Conference

MAHPERD established a School Health Education Conference last year to give professional development specifically to health educators.  This was needed in our association.  We invited the rest of the country as well.  The conference sessions reflected the National Health Standards, Performance Indicators, best practices and assessment in health education.
Budget  $7,500.00
Category  Education, General/Other
Population Served Adults
Program Short-Term Success  Health educators immediately voiced how pleased they were to have content knowledge specifically designed for the health education classroom and curricula.  Many said that this was the best conference in health education they had been to and we are now planning our next one for this August 2018.
Program Long-Term Success  With information and knowledge changing in such a fast paced world, MAHPERD does research and keep apprised of cutting edge approaches, strategies and content within health education.  We then bring professionals together at conferences such as this one to serve our health teachers but ultimately, our K-12 students within the health education classrooms.
Program Success Monitored By  --
Examples of Program Success  One of our Board members is nationally known and presented at our School Health Education Conference last year. She presented on skills-based health and this is an approach that is supported by effective health education programs and teachers.  She wrote a book on skills-based health and as a result, our health educators received a chance to speak one on one with her,  use her as a resource and invite her to various schools and obtained her book for curriculum purposes. This is/was a "win-win" for having a health educator with such expertise within our own state!

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
