School districts have the authority to excuse students from all high school physical education requirements if they participate in District-sponsored interscholastic athletics, marching band and cheerleading for at least two seasons, or an approved Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) program for two years.
With this policy, the board would not require the student to complete any physical education courses as a condition to graduate. However, the student will be required to earn one-half unit of credit, in another course of study to meet graduation requirements.
Procedure for Documenting Physical Education Course Exemptions:
1. Students should complete this online CH-UH Physical Education Waiver Application by the following dates. This application must be submitted each year.
- Fall – September 1, 2017
- Winter – December 8, 2017
- Spring – March 16, 2018
2. At the end of the season, the Athletic Department will verify with the coach/advisor that students who completed Waiver Applications have completed a full season. The school counselor will ensure that the student’s transcript is updated to reflect successful completion of the PE waiver.
