Diegnan & Pinkin Bill to Ensure Elementary School Health and Phys-Ed Professionals are Properly Endorsed Approved by AssemblyLegislation sponsored by Patrick Diegnan and Nancy Pinkin (Both D-Middlesex) to ensure all elementary school physical and health education teachers are appropriately certified and trained to teach K-6 grade levels was approved Thursday by the Assembly.
Under current law, in order to teach health and physical education in grades kindergarten through six in a public school, a teacher is not required to have these specific endorsements to the instructional certificate. A teacher with an elementary school endorsement, under certain regulations, would be permitted to teach these courses.
