The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (Department) is currently in the process of reviewing and revising the 1999 Massachusetts Comprehensive Health Framework .
The revised CHF will include standards for health, physical education, and social-emotional learning competencies.
During the fall 2018, the Department began recruiting the revision panel. Information was posted to the Department's webpage, shared via the Weekly Update sent to all school administrators and many others, and emailed to several hundred individuals. In addition, the Department sought help from various associations and organizations to share the panel application with their networks. The Department received 85 applications and selected nearly 50 panelists who bring significant knowledge and expertise in the many areas of comprehensive health programming (e.g., physical education, nutrition, sexuality education, etc.). The panel has broad representation from various geographic regions, types of schools and districts, professional roles, professional and community-based organizations, and more.
