 Physical Education Class Syllabus


Teacher: Ms. Manning School: Northwest High School Room: Aux Gym



Google Classroom Code: gbvvdan


Class Information: School districts may adopt a policy that would exempt students who participate in interscholastic athletics, marching band or cheerleading for two full seasons from the physical education requirement. Students must take another course to earn the half credit. 

“In January of 2007, the Ohio Legislature passed Senate Bill 311 Provision (L). Sec. 3313.603 (L) reads, Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, the board of education of each school district and the governing authority of each chartered nonpublic school may adopt a policy to excuse from the high school physical education requirement each student who, during high school, has participated in interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading for at least two full seasons. If the board or authority adopts such a policy, the board or authority shall not require the student to complete any physical education course as a condition to graduate. However, the student shall be required to complete one-half unit, consisting of at least sixty hours of instruction, in another course of study. The Board of Education adopted such a policy in January of 2012 allowing Northwest students to fulfill the State of Ohio Department of Education physical education requirement by completing two full seasons of participation in board-approved interscholastic athletics, marching band including flag corps, or cheerleading. This waiver began with the class of 2014.”

*This must be done through the guidance office.*


Class Description:  The physical education course is intended to meet the needs of secondary students through a broad comprehensive program of physical activities. Units of instruction are offered on team and individual sports, fitness, rhythmic activities and life‑time carry‑over sports. The instructional program encompasses skill teaching of team and individual competitive activities and provides opportunities of individual leadership and fellowship. It is intended that these instruction units will encourage continued interest and participation and be further expressed in intramural, interscholastic programs and serve as an avenue in developing a worthy adult leisure time to carry‑over. Regular attendance, effort, participation and proper clothing are vital.
