TAHPERD Exemplary School Program


The TAHPERD Exemplary Schools program recognizes school campuses for excellence in health and physical education. Receiving the top Level 1 requires a school to acquire the highest rating in 15 mandated criteria, plus the highest rating in four optional criteria. To reach Level 2, a school must have ratings of 2 or better on the 15 mandated criteria plus two of the four optional criteria. To reach Level 3, a school must have ratings of 3 or better on all 15 mandated criteria.

No Exemplary School Applications in 2022.
