Intent and Spirit of New Jersey's Comprehensive Health and Physical Education Standards
 
All students participate in a comprehensive, sequential, health and physical education program that emphasizes the natural interdisciplinary connection between wellness and health and physical education.  The standards provide a blueprint for curriculum development, instruction and assessment that reflects the latest research-based platform for effective health and physical education programs.  The primary focus of the standards is on the development of knowledge and skills that influence health behaviors within the context of self, family, school, and the local and global community.  (www.state. nj.us/education/cccs 2009)
