Health and Physical Education

The physical education program is designed to emphasize physical fitness and encourage healthy, active lifestyles. The physical education program consists of activities of at least moderate intensity and for a duration sufficient to provide a significant health benefit to students, subject to the differing capabilities of students. Participation in physical education in grades 6-12 will be regularly scheduled for students in accordance with State Statute.

High schools require one (1) credit of physical education to include the integration of health for graduation. 

This includes one (1) semester of Personal Fitness (.5 credit) and one (1) semester of an approved physical education course (.5 credit). Students may waive a portion or all of these requirements only to the extent permitted by State Statute.
