Health and Physical Education
The YSD1 PE/Health curriculum is composed of well-designed lessons that are aligned to the South Carolina PE and Health standards. The program of instruction is designed to build skills K-12 and ensure that motor skills, physical activity, and fitness assessments are age and developmentally appropriate and that the required comprehensive health components are incorporated as required by the South Carolina Comprehensive Health Act.
Appropriate monitoring and reinforcement with opportunity for students to conduct self-assessment and practice self-monitoring of physical activity is part of the regular student assessment of progress. Out of school assignments support the goals of the physical education and health programs and encourage the development of life-long healthy fitness habits. All classes are taught by qualified staff.
