To meet the needs and interests of the student body, a variety of courses are offered. Enrollment in more than one physical education course is permitted. Classes consist of co-educational activities geared to all skill levels. All elective physical education courses meet on alternate days for a full year except dance classes which meet daily.

All pupils registered in the schools of New York State are required NYS Education Law to attend classes of instruction in physical education. One course must be taken in each of grades 9, 10, 11, and 12 to earn the two credits required. Failure of any courses (9, 10, 11, 12) mandates repeating physical education during the summer school or the next school year. An individualized program of activity and/or study will be planned for any student who is medically excused from the activities of the general or elective program. In addition, an adapted program will be offered for students with disabilities.

All 9th and 10th grade students must enroll in General Physical Education. Each 11th and 12th grade student must choose an elective AND an alternative course in case his/her first choice cannot be scheduled. No request for change in a physical education course will be accepted if a student has been successfully scheduled for either his/her first choice or alternate.

Medically Excused Physical Education An individualized program or activity and/or study will be planned for any student who is medically excused from the activities of the general or elective program.
