Independent Study Physical Education (ISPE) - is a voluntary alternative instructional strategy for providing regular education. Students work independently, according to a written agreement, and under the general supervision of a credentialed teacher. Attendance in ISPE is based on the time value of the student's work product, as determined by the student's supervising teacher. Because ISPE is an alternative instructional strategy, not an alternative curriculum, students follow the same course of study and meet the same academic standards as classroom-based students.
Online Health Course Option - All students are required, per California Ed. Code 51890, to complete the State of California-mandated Health curriculum in order to graduate and earn a diploma. The standard way to meet this requirement is for 9th grade students to complete Year One P.E., which incorporates the Health curriculum in the course. In certain cases, a student may be eligible to take an online health course. Please review the criteria for eligibility carefully.
