Physical education requirements at a glance
Option 1: Students must take two years of physical education in high school, but up to one year may be waived due to participation in high school athletics.
Option 2: Two years of P.E. required, but the second year may be waived if students got an A or a B grade in the first year or passed five of the six components of the physical fitness test.
Option 3: Two years of P.E. required, with students in grades 10, 11 or 12 receiving one semester of P.E. credit for each sports season. Students who quit or are dismissed from the team are not eligible for the credit.
