• Health

    The mission of the Erie’s Public Schools Health and Physical Education Department is to build comprehensive health knowledge and skills in developmentally appropriate ways in grades K-12, in an effort to develop literacy in health and empower students to value and engage in life-long healthy lifestyles which will allow them to reach their fullest potential and assure that they become productive, responsible citizens. 

    The learning standards for this curriculum are based on the Pennsylvania’s Standards for Health and Physical Education and allow students to have multiple opportunities to learn through a planned and sequential instructional program. The Health Education Program is viewed as an integral part of a student’s academic learning and is a valuable component of a well-rounded education.
