    Grading Policy

    Participation and Preparation (80%) 

    Each student will receive points (0-5) daily for participation. Please see the Physical Education Rubric to see how your grade will be determined.  Each student will receive 1 pt. daily for preparation. Ex: If a student is fully prepared including t-shirt, gym shorts (not jeans or khaki shorts), and appropriate shoes they will receive 1 pt for that class period.  Daily grades will be scored out of 6 points.

    Unable to participate and required to make-up the class period



    If a student has a medical problem, the doctor’s note should state what the student can do. Ex: If a student has a broken arm, the doctor could include that the student can walk or work out their lower body. We can modify the P.E. Program so that these students can still receive credit in our class. If the student isn’t allowed to participate, they will be assigned written work during class in the gymnasium. If there is a circumstance where the student must be removed from the gymnasium for safety reasons they will be assigned outside written work for their long term medical.  These worksheets will be posted on the school website under teacher sites, Physical Education Department page.  The student will need to access this page, click on medical reports, and choose the corresponding unit we are currently in.  It will be the student’s responsibility to turn in assignments each Friday to their teacher. 

    Make-up Classes

    If a student is absent, they need to make up their P.E. class before the end of the current unit. Once the unit ends, any class that wasn’t made up will then become a 0. Make-ups will be available anytime a student has a study hall as long as they are coming into a class that isn’t over populated. Please see your teacher before 1st period for a pass to be excused from your study hall.   If the student does not have a study hall they will be required to access the written worksheets on the website in order to make up that class.  If a student is absent due to a school related event (band lesson, field trip etc), no make-up is required.  In the event that you choose not to participate during your class time, you will be required to make up that class during the current unit, and will lose your preparation point.
