BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Department of Public Instruction is revising physical education content and achievement standards for the first time in six years.

The draft was completed in June 2014 by a committee of physical education professionals from across the state.

The standards include lists of physical skills that a young person should have at various grade levels. For example, a kindergartener should be able to hop, skip and jump while keeping balance, catch a large ball, and jump a rope at least once. A third grader should be able to dribble a ball at “slow to moderate” speed and kick a stationary ball with accuracy.

DPI officials are encouraging people to review the standards on the agency’s website and submit any comments.
