District of Columbia - National HE Standards: Standards
2016 Health Education Standards
The District of Columbia’s Health Education Standards were last approved by the State Board of Education in December 2007. Over the past several months, OSSE has partnered with the State Board of Education to revise the standards, actively engaging with District agencies, health advocates, parents, teachers and other local stakeholders in the process of ensuring that these Standards reflect best-practices, evidence-based approaches, and align with the National Health Education Standards, second edition (NHES). Various experts— nutritionists, public health professionals, and master educators—have generously given their time and expertise in developing these robust standards.
