The Montana Standards and Performance Indicators for Health Education are written expectations for what students should know and be able to do by grades 2, 5, 8, and 12 to promote personal, family, and community health.
The National Health Education Standards (NHES) have provided a framework for the adoption of standards by most states, including Montana.
The standards provide a framework for curriculum development and selection, instruction, and student assessment in health education.
Importantly, the standards provide students, families and communities with concrete expectations for health education.
