  • School needs help in fitness effort

    Cedar Key School might be the best private public school in Florida, to quote Levy Schools Superintendent Cliff Norris, but even the best schools need help sometimes.

    Due to an unfunded mandate from the state of Florida that went into effect this school year, all schools serving grades K-5 are required to provide 150 minutes of physical education per week.

    Cedar Key already provides students with 90 minutes a week, but lone PE teacher Aaron Haldeman is responsible for all of those minutes, plus high school PE classes, and he can't do any more.
