Physical education is an important component of the educational school day, and current brain research supports the importance of physical activity at school to promote learning. Research also shows that children and adolescents who are physically active grow into healthier adults. The outcome of a developmentally and instructionally appropriate program of physical education is a physically educated person.
Physical Education in Orange County Public Schools is designed to give students the opportunity to learn through a comprehensive sequentially planned program in accordance with Florida Sunshine State Standards.
The state of Florida requires 150 minutes per week of physical education for elementary school students. Elementary physical education focuses on movement, cooperative learning, and manipulatives to enhance body and fitness awareness.
