Eight Period Day

To qualify for a phys. ed. waiver due to an academic schedule of eight periods, the schedule must be either:

  1. core driven (no more than two electives) or
  2. reflective of core classes for grade-level and graduation, and electives that demonstrate the student’s deep interest and past participation. Examples: 3-4 music courses (vocal and instrumental) or 3-4 technology-based electives. The student cannot randomly take 3-4 electives that do not support a pattern of past interest of collaborative content.

The eight-period schedule is not an option just to get out of physical education. Final decision and approval/denial for the eight-period schedule is made by the building principal.
