Other Assessment Criteria

2nd ND/Unprepared – 0%, written assignment required, make up class is permitted, can raise grade for missed class up to 100%.
3rd ND/Unprepared – 0%, written assignment required, make up class is permitted, can raise grade for missed class up to 50%.

Make up classes are scheduled by the student with a Physical Education teacher. They are held at a specified time or after school from 3:15 – 4 pm. Make up classes are held in the Fitness or Spinning Room, and consist of 45 minutes of cardiovascular training and weight training.
Any student that is unprepared/excused for class will be issued a written assignment/classroom observation sheet that relates to fitness. That assignment must be handed in at the end of class. This assignment is an alternative to participation in class, and holds the student accountable for that class period.
Students that are excused from class do not have to attend make up classes, and the missed class does not affect their grade. A parent note to be excused from class is acceptable for two consecutive class periods. A doctors note is required if your child needs to be excused for more than two classes. For doctor’s excusals lasting more than two weeks, an independent research project will be required. Arrangements for this project will be made with the student’s individual teacher.
Distinguished Honor Roll and Honor Roll
The Health/Physical Education department recognizes that there will be some students that will have difficulty maintaining Distinguished Honor Roll/Honor Roll status in Physical Education. We are offering the availability for students to earn extra credit in Physical Education by completing one project for each activity per marking period. There will be several options available for completion, including but not limited to the following; design a game/activity, create a media presentation, complete a research project, and report on a current event. It will be the students’ responsibility to track their grade and complete one of the respective projects within one week of completing each activity. More details and specific criteria can be found on the KV Health and PE website.
