Physical Education Learning Standards
New York State Physical Education Learning Standards, adopted 2020
Introduction In 2018, New York State (NYS) began a process of review and revision of its current physical education standards adopted in 1996. The New York State Physical Education Learning Standards were developed through numerous phases of virtual and face-to-face meetings with committees consisting of NYS educators, parents, curriculum specialists, school administrators, and college professors. Revisions, additions, instructional alignment, and clarifications to the current physical education standards reflect the collaborative efforts and expertise of all the above constituents. These standards are the framework for the development of knowledge, skills, and social emotional learning that enables students to transition to being healthy, physically literate adults.
