Northshore families, staff and community members are invited attend one of four informational sessions to view the proposed physical education and health standards for Northshore students in kindergarten through 12th grade.
In 2015-16, the state of Washington adopted new K-12 learning standards for physical education and health, with the expectation that districts would begin implementing these standards in the fall of 2017.
A committee of health and physical education teachers has designed a draft for the Northshore School District that will be presented at the beginning of each session, and participants will then have time to read the standards in more detail and provide feedback.
The health standards fall under six primary topics, adapted for each grade level: wellness, safety, nutrition, sexual health, social-emotional health and substance use and abuse. Depending on grade level, the PE standards cover a range of topics, such as motor skills, manipulative skills, games and sports, personal responsibility, safety, and many more.
Sessions are scheduled for:
- 6:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 23, Bothell High School library
- 6:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, March 30, Board Room, Northshore Administrative Center
- 6:30-7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 4, Inglemoor High School library
- 6:30-7:30 p.m., Thursday, April 6, Leota Junior High School library
Input from the informational sessions will be shared with the committee as it refines its recommendation for final approval later in the school year.
Interpreters are available by calling Communications at 425-408-7670.
