Academic Standards of Physical Education is an integral
part of the total educational process and provides movement-centered
and knowledge-based activities for students. The focus
of the Paradise Valley School District physical education
program is to offer activities in an environment, which
meets the physical, emotional, social and intellectual,
needs of all students regardless of their ability level.
A well-balanced program should offer students the opportunity
to develop an acceptable level of health and fitness, a
broad spectrum of physical skills, and the knowledge necessary
to use the skills and maintain fitness for a lifetime of
active participation. In addition to the essential skills
in the psychomotor domain, the following global objectives
should be integrated throughout the program. These objectives
are generally met through instruction, which is offered
in a sensitive understanding and caring manner to all students.
