School districts across the nation are reducing and/or eliminating physical education requirements. In 2017, the Illinois legislature adopted an amendment to Senate Bill 1947 which eliminated the daily PE requirement in schools, thus removing Illinois from the short list of states requiring daily PE. The purpose of this article is to share the changes Illinois School District U-46 implemented to their high school PE curricula which they feel better meets their students’ needs.
