The Office of Physical Education is in the Division of Curriculum and Instruction, Department of Special Programs, along with the Offices of Health Education and Dance. Each high school provides a comprehensive fitness-based physical education program that prepares students for a healthy and active lifestyle. This program enables students to meet graduation requirements and serves as a pre-requisite to the selection of physical education electives.
The Physical Education Program in Baltimore County Public Schools is based on National Standards and State Guidelines. See Maryland State Curriculum.
