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.
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 at the CH-UH Physical Education Waiver Application, available on the > More > Athletic Dept Info > PE Waiver.
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.
