PE Works was a multi-year improvement plan, funded by City Hall, to revitalize Physical Education so that our students receive high-quality, standards-based PE according to State requirements.
From 2015 to 2017, the DOE's Office of School Wellness Programs staff assessed PE programming and instruction in each district public school. From 2017 to 2019, Office of School Wellness Programs staff worked collaboratively with each school on action plans designed to provide the assistance, resources, and planning required to create environments where PE thrives.
