Coordinated School Health
Physical Education/Physical Activity and Wellness 

playgroundPhysical education is a planned, sequential pre-k -12 curriculum program that follows national standards in providing developmentally appropriate, cognitive content and learning experiences in a variety of physical activity areas such as basic movement skills; physical fitness; rhythm and dance; cooperative games; team, dual, and individual sports; tumbling and gymnastics; and aquatics. Quality physical education promotes, through a variety of planned individual and cooperative physical activities and fitness assessments, each student’s optimum physical, mental, emotional and social development; and provides fitness activities and sports that all students, including students with special needs, can enjoy and pursue throughout their lives. Qualified professionals such as physical education teachers and physical activity specialists provide physical education and related fitness activities.

Franklin Special School District’s physical education teachers are among the best in the nation.  In addition to meeting every requirement the state has for activity and classroom instruction time, FSSD teachers are dedicated to helping students learn about fun exercise as a component to a healthy lifestyle.
