Requires the assessment data to be reported to the State Board of Education. Requires the State Board to compile the results, including statewide averages, broken down by gender and grade level, and use the assessment data to file a summary report every other year, beginning in October of 2012, regarding the overall status of health-related fitness of Illinois public school children with the Office of the Governor, the General Assembly, and the Department of Public Health.
