PHYSICAL EDUCATION - 9-12

PHYSICAL EDUCATION - 9-12

 
There are three options students are given for High School Physical Education.  Listed below is a brief description of each.  The High School P.E. grade is an equal part of the students grade point average.  Therefore a certain amount of rigor is required.  This is not a pass/fail class.  Students will receive a numeric grade. A students grade is achieved in a manner that is unique from other classes.   85-95% of the grade is determined by daily class performance and participation. Therefore, when a student is absent from class, they are unable to earn the points designated for that class.  If a legal absence occurs for any reason other than a school sponsored event (these missed classes do not need to be made up) the class can be made up.  The student may make up the class by attending a different class at any time with any teacher in any H.S. P.E. class, by obtaining a class make-up form, making up the class and returning the signed form to their P.E. teacher.
