Grading Policy

Physical Education Attendance Policy           

It is our belief that all students need to be in class and be on timein order to achieve optimum benefits from physical education. Studentsmust earn eight credits (two per year) in P.E. to graduate from SouthKingstown High School. Since we are a Pass/Fail subject (S = satisfactory & U= unsatisfactory) it is extremely important that students be present inclass. Grading is based on attendance, participation, and effort aswell as meeting the national standards in physical education. Writtenwork may also be incorporated in the grading system.

Attendance and Make up Procedure:
All students are able to have up to three excused absences from physical education each quarter.

Students must make up all of the following:
  • All absences exceeding the 3 allotted
  • All unexcused absences
  • All unprepared (not changed) for class
  • Students will fail physical education for the quarter if they do not follow the above criteria.
  • Students missing a total of 8 or more classes, excused, unexcused and make-ups combined, will fail physical education for the quarter.
  • Students failing physical education for the quarter will have to attend PE Credit Recovery held on Saturdays.
Medical Excuses:
Quarter Medicals
  • Students obtaining a medical excuse for the quarter should see their guidance counselor regarding PE credit.
  • Medicals should be on file with the nurse’s office.
