Health instructional materials under Proclamation 2002 were readopted 2011–15 and 2015–19. There are currently no health or physical education instructional materials adopted by the SBOE. Proclamation 2010 was issued by the SBOE in November 2007. Proclamation 2011 was issued by the SBOE in May 2008. In May 2010, the board voted to postpone Proclamation 2012 indefinitely.

Proclamation 2014 was issued by the SBOE in April 2012. Proclamation 2015 was issued by the SBOE in April 2013.
