The board voted 6-0, with trustee Joe Nava abstaining, to allow students to have a second year of physical education waived if they meet the three requirements:

    I could see not requiring the second year of PE if, at the end of the first year you are meeting a set standard. Running the mile in so fast, pushups and all those levels of physical standard. But if you still can't run the mile in under the state standard then you need more PE. AND if you can't pass it the second year then you get a third year and lose an elective, same for senior year.

    I'm dating myself here but I can recall when I went to high school you were automatically placed in the last period of the day if you participated in a sport and it was considered a PE class. Of course we were required to have four years of PE at that time as well. If you weren't in a sport that particular semester then you were placed in a general PE class in any one of periods 1-6. And no, this was not in Lodi. I believe that if you participate in a sport it should count towards your PE requirement but at the same time the PE requirement should be for at least two years.

    Seems the only people opposing this are P.E. teachers....

    I believe this is a great idea for those students who are heavily involved in outside sports activities. This allows for a much more important class to be taken. Thumbs up!
