Band Can Replace PE Classes In Student's Schedule

Last updated on Monday, April 23, 2012

(WASHINGTON) - According to action taken be the Washington Community School Board,
Washington High School students involved in IHSAA sanctioned and school sponsored athletics, marching band, and other extra curricular activities that require strenuous activity can use that activity to replace traditional PE classes in their schedules.

WHS Principal Paul White had broached the idea at the March meeting and presented
a detailed policy for the board to consider Thursday night.

White said that because of college requirements the dual credit PE credit would still have to be earned in a traditional PE class. White also noted that students who are suspended from an athletic activity because of a violation of the schools athletic code would not receive

Students who are engaged in an athletic activity not sponsored by the school could petition the school for credit on an individual basis.

At the last meeting White told the Board that the change in policy would allow students and the school more flexibility in scheduling and allow students to be able to take more classes.
