The purpose of this study was to formulate Tennessee independent school K-12 quality physical education program guidelines. A panel of 18 physical education representatives from Tennessee independent schools K-12 participated in a three-phase Delphi study and completed three opinionnaires via e-mail. In Phase One, Opinionnaire One solicited panel member opinions pertaining to research-based physical education issues retrieved from a review of literature and panel-generated issues. In Phase Two, Opinionnaire Two panel members ranked 48 trend statements for desirability and feasibility. In Phase Three, Opinionnaire Three panel members ranked the statistically strongest physical education recommendations in order of importance to formulate nine guidelines. The study concluded that "Incorporate health, wellness, and fitness components into the physical education class" was ranked as the number one Tennessee independent school K-12 quality physical education program guideline.
