In Austin, physical education teachers have created Austin Association for Physical Education and Recreation (AAPER) to:
- To provide a quality physical education experience for ALL children of Austin.
- To work in partnership with AISD in developing, aligning and implementing quality Physical Education programs.
- To keep teachers on the cutting-edge of current knowledge and instructional practices in Physical Education.
- To encourage the community to embrace a physically active lifestyle.

Thirty-nine years ago, two PE teachers came up with the idea that we should let the kids run. Not make them run or tell them they have to run. Just let them run. These wise men thought to keep the cost down and let them run through the leaves, run by the lake, run for fun, run to compete, run for the first time, or just run to run. We invite you to continue the tradition started by two of our visionary teachers.
