Excellence in Physical Education Certification Program

The Governor's Commission on Physical Fitness and Sports in collaboration with the Mississippi Department of Education's Office of Healthy Schools is proud to announce the seventh annual - Excellence in Physical Education Certification Program. The Excellence in Physical Education Certification Program is an annual award available to public and private schools to officially recognize a school's commitment to a quality physical education program. The Commission understands that an individual teacher's greatest commitment to physical education may not result in the “Gold” level of excellence. In many cases a teacher may not be given the time or resources to achieve this level. Therefore, it is the Commission's desire that this program would be an incentive for the school district, administration, as well as the committed teacher to offer “excellent” physical education programs. Those recognized will serve as examples to other schools and school districts throughout the state to inspire others to strive towards meeting basic standards in quality physical education programs.
