||Physical Education Program Guidelines For Public Elementary and Middle Schools
||The 2012 General Assembly approved HB 1092 requiring the Virginia Board of Education to develop physical education program guidelines for public elementary and middle schools in collaboration with interested stakeholders.
These guidelines pertain to physical education, which should not be confused with physical activity. Physical education is a planned, sequential, quality instructional program that helps students learn
the skills necessary for performing a variety of physical activities and understand the benefits of achieving and maintaining a physically active lifestyle. By contrast, physical activity is any bodily movement that is any bodily movement that is produced by the contraction of skeletal muscles that increases energy expenditure.
