22 22 PE Waiver

23 PE Waiver 23 What is it? For eligible student athletes, the PE Waiver waives the PE requirement for high school graduation. It does NOT award credit. However, it allows the student to pursue other options to earn the 0.5 credit, rather than taking two PE courses (0.25 credit each). The student is still required to meet the minimum number of credits for graduation. Who is eligible? Students who are participating in interscholastic athletics at the high school are eligible to use the waiver after they have successfully completed two, full seasons. This can be two seasons in two, different sports, allowing the student to meet the requirements for the PE Waiver in one school year. The seasons can be in interscholastic athletics, cheerleading, and/or marching band. Under the Ohio state law, local boards of education may NOT add additional areas of participation beyond interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading which may be used to excuse a student from the high school physical education requirement. What does the student need to do? The student needs to participate in the two, full seasons and let his/her counselor know that he/she plans to use the PE Waiver for the PE graduation requirements.
