Physical Education

"Intelligence and skill can only function at the peak of their capacity when the body is healthy and strong." - John F. Kennedy

The Florida Department of Education has facilitated a review and revision of the Next Generation Sunshine State Standards (NGSSS) for Physical Education. We are pleased to announce that the draft document is ready for public review.

The purpose of the review and revision of the NGSSS for Physical Education was to ensure that the content standards reflect what a student should know and be able to do as the result of a quality physical education program. This review was conducted electronically beginning in March, 2012, and was completed in July, 2012. The review process consisted of four committees, with each of the four committees focused on one strand within the NGSSS for Physical Education (Movement Competency, Cognitive Abilities, Lifetime Fitness, Responsible Behaviors and Values). The state-wide review committees were comprised of physical education and health education teachers, adaptive physical education teachers, district curriculum coordinators, school administrators, university professors, and community advocates. This allowed for a thorough and detailed K-12 review of the benchmarks within each strand.
