Physical Education Course Waiver Requirements


Any student who participates in a state or nationally sponsored
competitive sports activity including participation in a professional
dance company can request a waiver of the Physical Education requirement
from the BHS administration.  Prior to approval, the coach/sponsor of the
program is required to provide assurance, on company/program letterhead,
that the student is meeting state physical standards and competencies
through participation in the activity (Ed. Code 51222b).  Students who
apply for a waiver must do so by the due date.  

2011 - 2012

semester, along with a description of the program on company letterhead,

*         Submit a verification of completion at the end of each semester
signed off by coach/sponsor

Please note the following changes from previous years: This year students
requesting a waiver no longer need a counselor to sign off but they do
need their club/program to identify themselves and verify on company
letter head that the student is a member and will fulfill the PE
requirements through them. The same signature from the club or program is
required at the beginning and at the end of the semester before the forms
are submitted to Mr. Melgoza.
