The Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) is authorized by the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended. In establishing PEP, Congress acknowledged the critical need to improve physical education programs for K-12 students, in order to help them make progress toward meeting state standards for physical education.
