PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND HEALTH
On top of completing the graduation requirement for PE, 11th and 12th grade students may sign up for an elective Physical Education course to earn additional credits. All students participating in Physical Education classes must purchase a school issued uniform at the cost of $20.00. These are the courses offered by the Physical Education Department. (1 full credit:1/2 PE 9, 1/2 PE 10). Grades 10, 11 and 12 are also required to earn a half credit in Health while grade 9 is required to earn 1 credit. It has been mandated by the state legislature that alcohol and other drug use prevention and specific topics on health and safety be taught to all students in Connecticut public schools. Students demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of these topics through effective communication and the use of decision-making and problem-solving skills. Please visit the Program of Studies.
