Elementary Health

  • District 47 is committed to adhering to the Illinois State Standards for Health Education. In response to P.A. 102-0522, the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) is anticipated to have updated standards for school districts available by August of 2022. 
     
    Our elementary and middle school teams are reviewing the National Health Standards, the National Sex Education Standards, the ISBE Wellness Department FAQ on P.A. 102-0522, and other appropriate resources and instructional practices in order to prepare for the incorporation of comprehensive personal health and safety education and comprehensive sexual health education into the standards. Once the updated Illinois State Standards for Health Education are released, any adjustments made to the D47 curriculum will be available here.

     

    At the elementary level, health is taught by the STEM teacher during the STEM Encore time. For 2021-2022, elementary health topics include: chart2
