12 Credit Flexibility and Physical Education Lisa Lyle Henry Physical Education Consultant Desk: Office:

13 Credit Flexibility and PE Available in all subjects Student-initiated plan A plan can include aspects of individual and team athletic participation. Those activities do not constitute a credit flexibility plan.

14 Credit Flexibility and PE Therefore, just by participating on an athletic team can not be a plan. The credit flexibility plan must be developed with components that address the graded course of study and/or the elements within the physical education academic content standards.

15 Credit Flexibility vs. PE Waiver Students who successfully complete all components of the physical education waiver are not required to take physical education in order to graduate. It is a local decision whether or not to adopt the physical education waiver policy.

16 Credit Flexibility vs. PE Waiver (L) Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this section, the board of education of each school district and the governing authority of each chartered nonpublic school may adopt a policy to excuse from the high school physical education requirement each student who, during high school, has participated in interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading for at least two full seasons or in the junior reserve officer training corps for at least two full school years.

17 Credit Flexibility vs. PE Waiver If the board or authority adopts such a policy, the board or authority shall not require the student to complete any physical education course as a condition to graduate. However, the student shall be required to complete one-half unit, consisting of at least sixty hours of instruction, in another course of study.

18 Credit Flexibility vs. PE Waiver In the case of a student who has participated in the junior reserve officer training corps for at least two full school years, credit received for that participation may be used to satisfy the requirement to complete one-half unit in another course of study.

19 Credit Flexibility vs. PE Waiver Interscholastic athletics, marching band and cheerleading cannot be substituted for physical education credit. When a district adopts the waiver policy, students are not earning credit for participation. Students are required to complete ½ unit of credit in another subject area in order to meet graduation requirements.

21 Career-Technical Education and Credit Flexibility Dan Stacy Career -Technical Education Consultant Office:

22 CTE and Credit Flexibility Credit Flex plan must have a basis. Credit flex plans that cover CTE content must be based upon a state-approved program/course in the school district or community school in which the student is enrolled.

23 CTE and Credit Flexibility Credit Granting The JVSD role in the granting of credit for credit flex plans is the same as its role in granting credit for Carnegie-unit- based programs/courses.

24 CTE and Credit Flexibility Credentials A person holding valid credentials to teach the program/course being flexed should be the teacher of record and should design/select instruction and assessment for a credit flex plan in that content area. If this is not possible, a counselor or administrator appropriately credentialed for high school age students could oversee the plan in consultation with a subject matter expert.

31 Thoughts to Ponder Who will be involved in the pre-identification of learning outcomes and measures of success? How will the student demonstrate what s/he knows and can do, apply the learning or document performance? Which existing assessments and performance tasks will be used to measure success?

32 Thoughts to Ponder What scoring criteria will be used to measure performance/proficiency (for locally designed tasks and assessments only) ? What score/rating does the student need to obtain to earn __ credit(s)?

33 Questions During the question and answer segments, you have the option to verbally ask a question – or – you may submit a question or comment through the Chat Pod.
