Research Policy Areas
CLASS is comprised of a mix of statutory laws passed by state legislatures and administrative laws enforced by state administrative agencies. These policies aim to improve the health of students and the conditions in which they learn by focusing on physical education and nutrition. Because CLASS monitors, classifies, and evaluates these policies, researchers, policymakers, and the educational community have access to trusted data with which they can examine the relationship between the policies and student behavioral and school environment outcomes, state by state.View Policy Map
