On Tuesday, we reported the results from a Pinellas County school district survey of how schools managed their "physical activity" time.

The survey found 85 percent of schools spend the majority of that time outside, 41 percent of schools give additional recess time outside of the mandatory health block, and 53 percent of schools say their physical activity time is unstructured.

A number of you asked for the details broken down by school. Here they are.

According to district spokeswoman Lisa Wolf, the survey was completed by school-based staff.

We apologize for the duplicate blog posts. We experienced technical difficulties uploading the link to the survey results.
