Physical Education is based upon the
acquisition of knowledge and skills that are the foundation for
participating in physical activity. However, the mere acquisition of
knowledge and skills is not enough. Its mission is to empower all
students to sustain regular, lifelong physical activity as a
foundation for a healthy, productive, and fulfilling life.
Physical Education is a sequential educational program. It is based on physical activities undertaken in an active, caring, supportive, and non-threatening atmosphere in which every student is challenged and successful. Students with disabilities are provided with a learning environment that is modified, when necessary, to allow for maximum participation. As a result of the quality Scotia-Glenville Physical Education experience our students will meet both the New York State Learning Standards for Physical Education and the National Standards for Physical Education. (NYS Curriculum Framework 1995)
