The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) identifies school health and physical education (HPE) as part of a student’s well-rounded education, giving every HPE teacher an opportunity to elevate their program and gain support from their school and local community. ESSA requires broad stakeholder engagement in order to implement comprehensive and effective state and school district plans. Key contacts and stakeholder groups from your state are listed below.
