PE Courses

PE 9

The freshman curriculum is aligned with the Content Standards which cover aquatics, team and individual activities, and dance. Fitness Components aligning with the State Fitness testing run throughout the program. 

Fitness Testing: Body composition, push ups, sit-ups, trunk lifts, sit and reach, mile run; VO2 max is calculated by the State. All students must pass 5 out of 6 tests to pass the Fitnessgram. If the student does not pass a test, for any reason (including medical reasons), that test is considered to be a "not passed" test. No exceptions per State mandate. Severely disabled students who have an IEP stating that they do not take the PFT will be considered to have "not passed" the PFT. There is no "Opt Out" provision with the PFT.  Those who do not pass 5 out 6 of the tests cannot be granted a waiver to take their second year of PE during any of their remaining years in high school (10, 11, or 12).  They must enroll in PE their sophomore year.  (Refer to CA SB 78)
