BEPA 2.0 is...
Core physical education (PE) and health education (HE) concepts are integrated into developmentally appropriate physical activities that promote PE and HE literacy and align to standards. In Oregon, BEPA 2.0 can be used to obtain up to 45 minutes per week of PE time in schools with a PE Specialist, and can be more broadly implemented in schools that lack any PE Specialist support.
BEPA 2.0 is for use in before, during, or after school settings; indoors and outdoors. Most activities are designed for the challenging classroom environment.
BEPA 2.0 provides all the materials necessary to get children active at school while helping teachers meet state PE and HE standards, laws and policies.
BEPA 2.0 is NOT an “exercise program” designed to build strength, endurance, or physical skills. Although these things may occur as a result of using the kit, the primary goals of the kit are to increase children’s physical activity levels and help teachers meet HE and PE standards through classroom-based active games.
