Academic Standards Delay in Physical Education

On March 20, 2023 Governor Tim Walz signed into law Chapter 17, House File 112 postponing the next review and revision of the physical education standards from the 2022-2023 school year to the 2026-2027 school year. In 2017, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) adopted the most recent Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) physical education standards, replacing the National Association of Sport and Physical Education standards. We updated the physical education standards only a few years ago and delaying this standard review process will provide relief for all MN physical education teachers by allowing time to focus on implementing the current standards for students. Special shout out to MNSHAPE and MNDAPE for all the support to make this happen!
