Program Standards

As educators, we are committed to the development and implementation of quality physical education instruction. Moving Into The Future – National Standards for Physical Education, a book developed by the National Association for Sport and Physical Education (copyright 2004), should be used as the guide to the delivery of KPBSD physical education programs.

The following content standards in physical education, which identify what a student should know or be able to do, will be applied to instruction at all grade levels.
