Laws & Regulations/Graduation Requirements

The WACs and RCWs outline Health and Physical Education requirements in our state.

K-12 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.


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.

School Health Profiles

The School Health Profiles (Profiles) is a survey conducted in Washington State every two years by OSPI and the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).
