2020 Health and PE Standards


Beginning in September of 2022 every public school district in New Jersey is required to adopt and teach a Health and Physical Education curriculum aligned to the New Jersey’s 2020 Health and Physical Education Standards (NJSLS) . However the curriculum and instructional resources that are used to meet these standards is a local decision made by each district, based on its own local curriculum development and review process. We are in the process of completing revisions to our Health curricula this summer. Draft versions of the Health curricula were piloted in K-6 this year and are available here

If you were unable to attend the recent Nutley Parent Academy, which focused on the new Health Standards and Curriculum, a recording of the meeting is available here:
