Health Education Legislative Requirement 


Recent legislation called the Health Education Act (70 O.S. § 11-103.13) requires school districts to provide instruction addressing all health education subject matter standards by the 2023-24 school year. This statute explains health education instruction may be integrated into one or more existing subjects or provided as an addition to existing coursework. It also states that teachers assigned to teach health education as a stand-alone course will be certified in physical and health education. Additionally, subject matter graduation requirements emphasize that all students will receive health instruction needed to lead healthy and physically active lifestyles (70 O.S. § 11-103.6).  Click here to view the Guidance and FAQs for the Health Education Legislation in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma State Department of Education is here to support schools with the implementation of health education instruction and want to offer technical assistance to schools across the state. If you need targeted support or have questions, please fill out the technical assistance form.
