I requested the opportunity to be on the committee that is selecting the new middle school principal.  I am allowed to contribute one question.  What one question regarding Physical Education would you like to see a  candidate answer?

My school utilizes a wellness based curriculum as opposed to a sports based one.  If fact, the course is titled Personal Health and Wellness instead of Physical Education.  I would like to ask a question regarding their stance on the relationship between athletics and Physical Education…facility usage, equipment usage, etc.   The department has worked very hard to separate the two over the last 6 – 8 years with our current principal.  We are concerned about the possibility of going backwards if the new principal does not see it the same way.  I’ve no doubt that everyone can point to a district (or several) where the sole purpose of Physical Education if to feed the sports teams.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!
