Health and Physical Education

Health and Physical Education teaches our students that good health and safety principles can lead to a lifetime of healthy practices, resulting in more productive, active, and successful lives.

Learning Standards
The Health and Physical Education Standards and grade-level outcomes describe what students should know and be able to do. They establish the concepts and skills necessary for safe and healthy living, and in turn, for successful learning.

Support for Standards Implementation

The OSPI-developed assessments are the state assessment models designed to help schools and districts determine whether students have met the health and physical education learning standards.

Laws and Regulations/Graduation Requirements
The WACs and RCWs that outline Health and Physical Education requirements in our state.
