New York State Education Law requires that all students participate in Physical Education, for which they receive credit each year. Physical Education credit is a requirement for graduation. Additional information is available in the Student Handbook. All students are required to take Physical Education in grades 9-12, and will receive 1/4 credit per semester upon successful completion of the course. Doubling in Physical Education is permitted only for students in Grade 12. If there are medical reasons why you cannot participate in a full program, a modified program will be provided. To be eligible for the modified program your physician must fill out the school form, which will inform the Physical Education teacher which activities you may safely participate in. The form may be obtained from the school nurse.
