Off Campus PE Middle School and High School

  • INFORMATION/REQUIREMENTS

    A request for independent study in physical education allows the student advanced study in activities not normally received in the on-site physical education program. The following competitive sports have been approved by the District for the Off-Campus Independent Study – Physical Education Program:

    • Dance (see requirements below)
    • Equestrian
    • Golf
    • Gymnastics
    • Ice Skating
    • Swimming
    • Tennis
    • Other Non-Team Sports 

    Independent physical education must be a significantly different program that involves an activity in which the applicant has become competitive at a state, regional, or national level. A major factor in determining acceptance or rejection of this request will be the difference between a recreational and an established qualified competitive program. AR 6158 prohibits team sports for Off-Campus Independent Study Physical Education and can be found using this link (select Policies, click on "6000. Instruction", and search for AR 6158).

    In the case of dance, participants must be an auditioned member of a studio competition team or performance company, be in pursuance of a career in the dance performing arts, and supply the additional documentation:

    • Student weekly studio dance schedule – print out from studio (must include class description time and duration, as well as teacher’s name and contact phone number).
    • Copy of current Competition Team or Performance Company Contract (signed and dated).
    • List of Competition Pieces and Choreographer names and contact phone numbers (minimum of three required annually – one must be a solo). Dance must have competed or regionally performed solo, in a major production, in prior sessions.

    The nature of the activity must provide a training and weekly practice schedule with a minimum of 10 hours per week for middle school and 15 hours per week for high school that indicates that the applicant is a serious participant. Documentation of competition and/or performance at the Regional (Northern, Central, or Southern California), State, or National level must be submitted to the administrator or counselor. Examples of documentation may include:

    • Videotape of performance
    • Award/place/participation certificates
    • Meet/event participant lists
    • Newspaper listing stating participant’s name

    If you have any questions regarding your student's packet, please contact Lori Brewer at (951) 676-2661 or (lbrewer@tvusd.us).
