This article presents information about the collaboration program being used by the Physical Education Program Development Center with Teachers College, Columbia University, and six affiliated school districts. The program consists of a variety of organizational and operational approaches designed to accommodate the differences among schools and teachers. The Center has developed numerous programs for fitness programming, curriculum writing, cooperative games, and more. The best models appear to work when they are school-centered and much of the control is in the hands of the school personnel.
