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.

TOSY Nominations

TOSY is TAHPERD’s recognition of students of TAHPERD members that are outstanding in our disciplines of health, physical education, recreation, and dance. The only criterion for the recognition is the recommendation of the student’s teacher (TAHPERD member). The deadline for submitting an application is April 1, 2020. All certificates will be completed and returned to the TAHPERD member no later than April 30, 2020. If there are special needs that require a certificate prior to this date, please contact Lynda Alvarado, lynda@tahperd.org, and arrangements will be made.
