In this study, teachers' fidelity to the DynamicPhysical Education (DPE) curricular model was measured for high and nonsupportdistrict groups. Participants were 20 Physical Education teachers. Ten teachersworked in a highly supportive district, while 10 teachers worked in nonsupportivedistricts. Data were collected using field notes, a DPE observation instrument, andinformal interviews.
