SDE: Physical Education

Physical Education

{Childern Playing} Planned, sequential PK-12 physical education provides psychomotor, cognitive and affective content and learning experiences that promote optimum personal development. Quality curriculum and instruction, provided in a safe, supportive environment, offer meaningful, challenging learning for all students, and result in lifetime learning outcomes of skills, literacy, and ability to understand concepts and develop plans for lifetime physical activity and wellness.
Physical education is one component in a coordinated approach to school health. For information about the role of physical education in coordinated school health programs, go to: Healthy ConneCTions.
