Physical Education and Physical Activity

A comprehensive school physical activity program (CSPAP) is the national framework for physical education in schools. A CSPAP is a planned, sequential K-12 curriculum that is based on the national physical education standards and reflects strong coordination across five components: physical education, physical activity during school, physical activity before and after school, staff involvement, and family and community engagement. A strong physical education program provides the opportunity for students to develop motor skills and knowledge, as well as to practice behaviors for healthy active living and critical skills such as sportsmanship, self-efficacy, and emotional intelligence. Instructors should be certified or licensed and endorsed by the state to teach physical education.
