Scottsbluff Public Schools Health Instruction
Before the initial draft health standards were released, the Nebraska Department of Education had not provided health standards for local school districts. Therefore, Scottsbluff Public Schools has not adopted health standards but has instead used the following Rule 10 requirements and the Nebraska Physical Education Standards to guide health-related instruction. The Rule 10 requirements have primarily been met in physical education, science classes, middle school exploratory courses, and some elective high school courses.
004.02A5 Health. The curriculum helps children develop an understanding of the body systems, nutrition, wellness (including physical activity), and healthy living habits.
004.03A6 Health. The curriculum includes the study of body systems and those factors which affect health, including natural and man-made threats and individual health choices.
004.04B7 Personal Health and Physical Fitness - 20 instructional units or two years of daily classes in personal health and physical fitness. The personal health and physical fitness curriculum includes content to emphasize life-long wellness habits including the knowledge and psychomotor skills applicable to cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The curriculum emphasizes non-participation in high-risk behavior. The physical fitness curriculum includes an active program of health-related physical fitness, including cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Practice for and participation in interscholastic athletic activities are not accepted as a substitute for any part of the personal health and physical fitness requirement.
