Physical Education is a standards-based academic subject where all students will receive quality instruction as an essential foundation to achieve lifelong physical health, social-emotional wellness, and academic success.
- Quality Physical Education focuses on “Learning to Move” and “Moving to Learn”. Academic standards and outcomes focus on; movement competency, physical and personal wellness, social-emotional wellness, and prevention and risk management. The goal is for students to achieve physical literacy by graduation.
- Consistent access is an important feature of Physical Education, as teachers focus on providing MVPA (Moderate to Vigorous Activity) for at least 50% of instructional time. MVPA is “health enhancing movement”, or 60%-90% of your maximum heart rate.
