What are the PE online course requirements?
eLearning PE focuses more on the health aspects (components of physical education) of physical education, and has minimal information on the rules/regulations of various sports. It's essentially a health based curriculum. There is one lesson that requires students to choose a sport and research it in depth. If students enjoy playing sports, it is  recommend that they enroll in brick and mortar summer PE...as all they do is play a variety of sports all day. Students are required to take a pre- and post-fitness test IN PERSON as well as their final exam IN PERSON. These IN PERSON tests will be scheduled with the student's online instructor. Students are also required to log 14 hours of physical activity during the course of the three-week class.

Can a student take one semester of PE now and one next summer?
Yes. Please note: Students must attend one pre-test date and one post- test date per Session. If students are completing both Sessions, they can use their Session I post-test score as their Session II pre-test score.
