Off Campus PE Middle School and High School


    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

    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. Board Policy prohibits team sports for Off-Campus Independent Study Physical Education.

    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
