New National Health Education Standards were adopted in 2007 SD used the National Standards as a model for the SDHES SD DOE adopted the SDHES in 2010
The new standards incorporate the five old standards and also include three new. Added Decision Making Skills, Goal Setting Skills and Analyzing Influences IE: Family, Peers, Media, Technology The 8 standards broadly and collectively articulate what students should know and do to adopt or maintain health enhancing behaviors.
The new standards incorporate health/wellness concepts with the concept of 21 st Century Skills 21 st Century Skills as defined by business leaders include: Critical thinking, problem solving, communication, leadership and technology literacy These skills blend nicely with Meade School Districts mission “To build knowledge and skills for success today and tomorrow.”
Currently health concepts are taught in both physical education and regular classrooms. PE/Health Department will review the new standards and use them to update the district Health Education Curriculum Guide. The updated guide will outline what will be taught at each grade level, what standards are addressed and a recommendation of what subject areas the standards can be taught. A cross curricular approach in teaching health concepts will allow for overlap of the standards taught and hopefully diminish any gap in instruction that may exist.
It is important to review and/or revise standards and curriculum in a timely manner in order to keep current with what is best for our students. The SDHES were derived from the National Standards and modified by a committee of SD educators and health professionals to ensure that the standards represent what the students of SD need to engage in a healthy lifestyle. Based on this knowledge the Meade School District Health/PE Department and it’s members recommend the adoption of the new SDHES.

Who: Selected teachers; in Meade 46-1, two teachers from each administrative unit Where: Sioux Falls, Aberdeen, Rapid City When: 2 days in December, 2 days in February What: Disaggregate, “unpack,” the Common Core Standards.
These were recently held in seven locations including Rapid City and Spearfish. Several teachers from our district were selected to attend. The purpose was for participants to become familiar with The 8 Standards for Mathematical Practice that are an integral part of the CCSS.
1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them. 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others. 4. Model with mathematics. 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. 6. Attend to precision. 7. Look for and make use of structure. 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
Goal: All students are college and career ready. ELA CCS ReadingSpeaking Language Writing Language Across the Curriculum

Adoption of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) provides for: Nationwide Consistency Rigorous and Relevant Learning Targets Research-based Accountability We encourage your approval and adoption of the CCSS. Furthermore we hope for your continued support in our district’s transition to the implementation and use of these standards.
