District of Columbia - National PE Standards: Standards

Policy Type: 

State law addresses National Physical Education Standards as a guide for providing PE or includes a list of all National PE standards without mentioning the standards by name.

2017 Physical Education Standards

The District of Columbia’s Physical 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 SHAPE America, District agencies, physical educators, and other local stakeholders in the process of ensuring that these standards reflect best-practices and align with SHAPE America’s National Physical Education standards. Numerous experts have generously given their time and expertise in developing these standards.
