LWSD Physical Education options

To earn a high school diploma, students must earn two health and fitness credits. 1.5 credits represent the fitness portion of the requirement, and are met by course work in physical education (PE). The other .5 credit is met by taking a health course.

There may be special circumstances where a student may have an alternative option to meet this requirement. Students must fill out the Appendix E of the graduation policy and have it approved by a principal or designee to be eligible for this option. The alternative Physical Education option is available for high school juniors and seniors.

The Fitness Plan is a cognitive, written assignment. Students will have three opportunities to submit a Fitness Plan during the 2023-24 school year.  The plan is offered to students beginning in the students’ 11th grade school year. 

The Fitness Plan is a district wide option, please use the contact below to contact the coordinator with any questions.
