The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) is seeking applications for the Health Education and Physical Education Review Committee and Advisory Panels.

KRS 158.6453 calls for KDE to implement a process for reviewing academic standards and aligned assessments. The Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS) for Health Education and the KAS for Physical Education will begin this review process during the 2023-2024 school year.

KDE is seeking current K-12 classroom teachers and postsecondary educators to participate in this work. Applicants will be required to meet virtually and/or in Frankfort for 5-10 days beginning in the winter of 2023-2024, continuing through summer with further meetings possibly taking place in the 2024-2025 school year.

When applicable, selected team members will receive reimbursement for travel expenses, and the teacher’s school district will be reimbursed for substitute teacher expenses as well. Potential applicants are asked to verify the willingness of their school or district to release them for work dates throughout the school year.

The online application to be on the Health and Physical Education Review Committee and Advisory Panels will be posted for 30 days. Applications will be accepted through Sept. 29. Selected team members will be notified by Oct. 13.
