Additional Physical Education Evaluation Training Workshops Scheduled

Senate Bill 210 identifies four components that will make up a health and wellness measure to appear on Local and State Report Cards for 2012-2013. Those components are benchmark evaluation, body mass index (BMI), physical activity and compliance with local wellness policy. To help teachers determine if the benchmarks in the first component are being met, ODE has developed an evaluation instrument that will measure student success in meeting targets contained in the physical education academic content standards. To learn more about the physical education evaluation, educators can attend one of following free ODE workshops added in November and December:

Space is limited and pre-registration is required. Individuals must register through STARS by first accessing (or creating) their SAFE accounts. Additional workshops will be offered throughout the fall. For more information, click the top-of-page “Calendar” link at education.ohio.gov.
