Physical Education Equipment Guidelines for Georgia Schools.
Georgia State Dept. of Education, Atlanta. Office of Instructional Services.
This document presents equipment needs for an adequate (as opposed to minimum) level of physical education programming at primary, middle, and secondary school levels. The "adequate" level is presented since minimal requirements are often considered by educators as being "adequate," and they accept the minimum as being a mean if only the minimum is presented. General goals of physical education are discussed, and expected student outcomes at each of the three levels are listed. Equipment envisioned for the elementary school program is for a population of 600 students and approximately 24 teachers. The assumption underlying the plan is that there will be four sections per grade level and that only two of the four sections will be using the equipment at any one given period. Middle and secondary school levels are based on a population of 900 for the middle school and 1,500 for the secondary school, with all students in the middle school enrolled in the program. Not all students in the secondary school are expected to take part in the program. Careful schedulinq and innovativeness on the part of instructors can reduce the expenditure necessary for equipment purchase. An equipment inventory check list is appended. (MJB)
