What to Know About Wvu’s Physical Education Association
Posted May 06, 2018 09:57:06The Wvu Physical Education Associations are a group of physical education professionals who have agreed to join together under a common banner to advocate for their members and support their interests.
It’s an ambitious effort to create a body of expertise for physical education educators, one that will include an official national body to coordinate education across the country, as well as regional associations and districts.
In short, Wvu hopes to be a national association with a voice and resources that other states have lacked.
Wvu will also have its own Board of Directors, which will make decisions and serve as the umbrella body that will represent its members and their interests across the nation.
The group will also host a series of events, including workshops and forums, that will showcase how physical education education is evolving and expanding throughout the nation, as it seeks to better serve children and adults of all ages.
“Wvu hopes that the physical education profession will become a leader in the national conversation, and the association will contribute to that conversation by working together on key issues such as the national physical education policy, the evolution of physical training and sport, and physical education curricula,” said John Venn, vice president for public affairs and marketing for Wvu.
“We believe that we can achieve these goals through our collective efforts.”
IUPU President/CEO John Vinson says the association is committed to supporting physical education leaders as they seek to create the best possible profession in the nation by providing training, opportunities and resources for them to work toward their goals.
He said that the association has been instrumental in promoting the Wvu policy and training curriculum, and is also working to expand and promote physical education programs across the United States.
The WvU policy is designed to promote the development of physical fitness in all of its components, Vinson said.
It provides guidance to all physical education teachers and provides practical guidance and support for physical educators.
Vinson said the policy provides a roadmap for physical fitness and fitness training for all physical educators and physical educators in other states, and will be updated in 2018.
This will include developing curricula that are consistent with the Wvu policies and standards and will also include training on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, physical education and physical fitness for all staff, including physical educators, he said.
As physical education evolves and grows, the association hopes to expand its efforts to provide educational resources to schools and parents, Venn said.
For example, the policy states that physical education curriculum should focus on physical activity for the child, but also on other physical health issues and activities.
For example, physical health is one of the key components of an integrated physical education program, Vann said.
He said the association believes the policy will have a positive impact on students.
In addition to working with school districts to implement the WVU policy, Vamp said the group is working with the state of Connecticut to make sure physical education instruction is provided in schools and is part of the state’s physical education core curriculum.
And for Wvwv’s members, Vamping said the organization is working to improve physical education certification for all state workers and teachers and to provide training to physical education experts in all state agencies.
