STUDENTS n = 285 n = 241
Receptivity
 % of students who indicated they liked the program 72.7% 69.2%
 % of students who indicated they would do it again 80.8% 91.6%
  1. aImplementation Score = Score (0–3) based on estimate of the extent to which essential and enhanced PA program elements were implemented to standard per school (see Table 1 for detail)
  2. bPA Program minutes offered per week = based on estimated number of minutes that students were exposed to PA program per week per school averaged across two years of implementation
  3. PA Program minutes planned per week = based on estimated number of minutes that champions/teachers reported planning to offer of PA programming (at baseline prior to program start)
  4. cAverage minutes children engaged in MVPA during program session; 100 Mile Club represents 2 schools, CHALK/Just Move represents 8 classrooms from 2 schools
  5. dReach = estimate based on maximum number of students exposed to the PA program per school per two years of implementation, estimate based on reported number of participants from surveys and for 1 school from direct observation
  6. eChampion/teacher receptivity: 100 Mile Club represents 3 schools, CHALK/Just Move represents 19 teachers from 5 schools
