Attendance Policy: If the student has more than five (5) absences within the first two (2) marking periods, he or she may be dropped from the course.

Curriculum/ Schedule of Activities: Acquaint students with the curriculum. Ninth graders will be responsible for taking one semester of “Fitness Concepts” and a second semester of the “Introduction to PA”. The tenth and eleventh grade curriculum is based on the eight sport categories (team passing sports, net/wall sports, striking/ fielding sports, target sports, dance and aesthetics, aquatics, personal performance activities and personal fitness activities). A different activity has been selected for each sport category. Finally, as twelfth graders, students have an opportunity to excel in either a full year project adventure course (that includes a ropes course) or two of the eight sport categories. The overall objective of the grade-specific curricula is to assist the student to become physically active and physically fit, acquire knowledge of the benefits of physical activity, health and wellness, and the principles of fitness, and to become an independent decision-maker who can plan his or her own personal fitness plan.

Health and Safety Precautions: Jewelry: with the utmost regard for student safety and in conjunction with district policy, students will be required to remove ALL jewelry (including watches, rings, bracelets, body piercing decorations, etc.) before participating in physical education class. When removal of such items raises medical concerns, students must provide a doctor’s note. Further, it is the student’s responsibility to completely cover the jewelry in question with tape and/or Band-Aids. If the student does not follow this procedure, he or she will not be allowed to participate in physical education class for that day and will not receive credit. Mouthguards: are recommended for all students who wear braces.

Gum Chewing: There is to be no gum chewing during physical education classes.
