Alabama Course of Study: Physical Education General Introduction

The National Association for Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) has established broad national standards for superior physical education programs. These standards provide the framework for comprehensive physical education programs and identify what students should know and be able to do as a result of participation in a sound physical education program. The NASPE standards were carefully considered in developing the content standards within this document that define the physical education curriculum for each K-8 grade level, the required Lifelong Individualized Fitness Education (LIFE) high school course, and the high school elective courses.
