To provide students the opportunity of pursuing a physical education experience that meets the intensity/competition level they desire to participate. This allows for equity of game play based upon ability grouping while maximizing student participation. The ultimate goal is to maximize student participation and engagement while providing a meaningful learning experience that is driven by student selection in regard to the intensity of the course.
The objectives of the high school Physical Education program is to expose students to a wide variety of team and individual sports and lifetime and leisure experiences. The program is designed to provide all students with opportunities for mental, physical and social growth and development through physical activities. In classes with multiple Physical Education teachers, students will select the level of instruction by choosing either Extreme Physical Education or Regular PE.
Extreme Physical Education will provide the opportunity for students to participate in an extremely intense, highly competitive physical education experience. Extreme Physical Education classes will present rigorous fitness challenges, competitive game play and advanced game strategies. This class will utilize the sport education model periodically throughout the semester in order to provide students with the fundamental principles of collegiate and professional athletics. A primary goal of the curriculum is to provide students with an awareness of their own health related physical wellness, and to promote their desire to remain active and fit throughout life. The high school fitness room will be used by all students to augment the physical wellness units. All physical education classes are coeducational.
Students must dress appropriately for class, participate actively, display sporting behaviors, and complete assessments and projects for each unit to earn credit each semester. Each high school student must complete eight semesters of Physical Education to meet the graduation requirement of this subject area. As an alternate-day semester course, the high school attendance policy in place allows only five absences per semester in Physical Education. Students will be scheduled for an additional Physical Education class in a subsequent semester if they receive a grade of “No Credit.”
