NDE RELEASES SECOND DRAFT OF HEALTH EDUCATION STANDARDS
The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) released the second draft of the Nebraska Health Education Standards and is seeking input from the public. The information collected will be used as part of the standards review and revision process.
State law requires updates to the standards for reading, writing, mathematics, science, and social studies every seven years. The NDE expanded that effort to review and update standards for each content area every seven years. Once approved by the State Board of Education, the standards create the framework for health education in Nebraska. Decisions about curriculum and instruction are made locally by individual school districts and classroom teachers.
The draft Health Education Standards are available for review and input at https://www.education.ne.gov/healthed/health-education-standards-development/.
