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.

ONLY online submission will be accepted. No paper applications will be accepted. However, the committee suggests you print this preview version to work from and gather your information.

All certificates will be completed and returned to the TAHPERD member no later than March 31, 2019.
