Health Education Standards Development

A group of educators (teachers, administrators, ESU staff, postsecondary representatives), led by the Nebraska Department of Education, began the work of developing the Nebraska Health Education Standards in March of 2020.  The standards, “Nebraska Health Education Standards,” create the framework for K-12 health education in Nebraska.  The anticipated approval date by the State Board of Education is Fall 2021.
