South Carolina - National PE Standards: Standards
South Carolina Academic Standards for Physical Education
The South Carolina Academic Standards for Physical Education 2014 contained in this document and their accompanying grade-level indicators (Kindergarten, 1 – 2, 3 – 5, 6 – 8, and High School) give physical educators a framework for producing physically literate individuals and setting students on a path to enjoy a lifetime of physical activity. The five standards statements included in the standards are based, in closely adapted form, on the current National Standards for K-12 Physical Education, which were published in 2013 by SHAPE America – Society of Health and Physical Educators (formerly AAHPERD). These standards and indicators are written in a manner that is measurable and observable in order to facilitate the assessment and tracking of student learning.
