Louisiana - Content Standards: Health
Through legislative requirements of Act 180 (2007), the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) was given the responsibility to coordinate the development and implementation of health and physical education (PE) curricula in all public elementary and secondary schools. Also in 2007, coordinated school health stakeholders recommended the development of grade-level expectations (GLEs) for health and PE. GLEs have been developed for core content subjects to develop grade-by-grade standards to guide the development of curriculum, instruction, and assessment and to provide uniformity in subject content taught across Louisiana. Therefore, the Department of Education chose to develop GLEs to achieve the charge of developing curricula in health and PE.
