The health education program focuses on wellness and health promotion, with emphasis on the need to influence children and youth to make early decisions about positive lifestyles that will continue into adulthood. These comprehensive health education curriculum standards focus on positive self-image, decision-making, nutrition, stress management, alcohol and drug abuse, and physical fitness. These standards are designed to be used by school administrators and teachers in developing their local comprehensive health education programs. Strategies and activities are to be developed by the local district. The Health Education Curriculum Standards are divided into the following categories: K-3, 4-6, 7-8, and 9-12. Each set of standards includes program objectives and corresponding student expectations.
