Online Health Course

All grade 9-12 students must receive State of California Health content. The standard way to meet this requirement is for grade 9 students to complete a 9th-grade Physical Education course, which incorporates the Health content within the course.  
 
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 fulfills the state content and does not earn a grade or credits on the transcript.
 
The eligibility criteria is: 
  • Students who are exempt from enrollment in Year 1 PE due to medical reasons (physician’s note required)
  • Students who are enrolled in Access PE instead of Year 1 PE per an Individualized Education Plan (IEP)
  • 12th graders newly enrolled in the district who have fulfilled the PE requirement and need to receive CA Health Education per the CA Healthy Youth Act
  • 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 
  • Incoming grade 9 students who have applied/been approved for Independent Study PE (ISPE) - Any student who is approved for ISPE for 9th grade must enroll in and complete the Health curriculum in the summer prior to the start of 9th grade. Students who fail to complete the Health course will be placed in Year One PE for 9th grade.
