Thank you for your interest in the Independent Study Physical Education (I.S.P.E.) program. For 2017-18, all student eligibility applications must be completed online. See the info links on the right side of this letter. All the information you need is included on this web site.
We support and appreciate after-school activities, and we encourage students to participate in them. For the most part, however, these outside sports do not take the place of the regular physical education class which offers an introduction to diverse sporting activities in the context of a cooperative classroom environment. Students are encouraged to participate in the on-campus physical education program, especially at the 7-10 grade levels.
While our primary recommendation is that all students participate in the district physical education program, we do offer an independent study physical education program for (1) exceptionally gifted, state or regionally ranked athletes, (2) students wishing to take an advanced level in a course we are not currently offering, (3) To provide an alternative for students who have an impacted schedule who are in special academic support programs (i.e. AVID) or a specialized elective they need to take each year during the regular school day which preclude taking a regularly scheduled P.E. class, (4) students with medical conditions, or (5) students who have fulfilled their high school graduation P.E. requirement.
An independent study course requires personal accountability and maturity. Students in I.S.P.E. will be responsible for fulfilling the requirements of the I.S.P.E. contract, which include completion of all workout logs, and submission of all reports. Details of the requirements are contained in this packet. Individuals are selected based upon their ability to handle the individual responsibility. Please understand that due to the independent nature of the program, a large part of the grade (pass/fail) that your son/daughter receives will be based upon his/her accomplishment of the agreed objectives, and his/her communicating this information to the I.S.P.E. Coordinator in a timely fashion.
