CA Health content

CA Health content

All grade 9-12 students must receive State of California Health content. The standard way to meet this requirement as part of the district course of study is for grade 9 students to complete a 9th-grade Physical Education or Independent Study PE course, which will include the CA Health Education content within the course.  
Independent Study Online Health
The district offers an independent study online health course for eligible students. The online health course does not require students to attend a class - they can complete the course from anywhere that they can access the online curriculum. The course provides the CA content and does not earn a grade or credits on the transcript.
The eligibility criteria is: 
  1. Students who are exempt from enrollment in Year 1 PE due to medical reasons (physician’s note required)
  2. Students who are enrolled in Access PE instead of Year 1 PE per an Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  3. 12th graders newly enrolled in the district who have fulfilled the PE requirement and still need to receive CA Health Education per the CA Healthy Youth Act
  4. Incoming grade 9 students enrolled in a team sports PE class without the health curriculum  in 9th grade instead of Year 1 PE at La Costa Canyon or Torrey Pines High School 
Families of eligible students should contact their school directly for information about enrolling in online health.
