Make Up Policy

PE Absence & Make-Up Policy 2014/2015


PARTICIPATION POINT SYSTEM

•Students are graded only on the days that they are present in PE.  This means that  when a student is absent, there will be no participation make up required.  
• Point breakdown: Block Days are worth 10 points, and non-block days are worth 5 points. 
• Deductions from daily points concern responsibility (ie. punctuality, loaner clothes, etc.), behavior, and effort.  
• Students who do not have a note that states they are injured or ill during class must make up the workout during a supervised time at school.  Time & days will be determined.
• If a student is suspended due to an issue IN PE, this will result in a loss of all participation points for the duration of the suspension. These participation points cannot be made up.
• If a suspension is due to an offense OUTSIDE of PE, this is treated like a routine absence.  As such, they will be excused from making the missed participation up.
• If student does not participate 4 or more weeks in PE for the particular quarter, they will receive a NO GRADE in PE for the current grading period. 

ASSESSMENTS/ TEST MAKE-UP

•All tests must be made up. Monthly Mile & Fitness Testing must be made up in class with PE teacher by arrangement.  Unit Reflection, School Net Assessments, etc. need to be made up on a student’s own time during TNT, lunch or at home. 

DAILY WORKOUT MAKE-UPS

•Students who are absent for a workout will be excused from that workout.
•Students who have a DOCTOR’S note (NOT PARENT NOTE) will be excused from the workout, based on the details in the note. 
•Students who have a PARENT’S note will need to do a make-up for their workout from one of the choices on the WORKOUT MAKE-UP SHEET.
•Students who have NO NOTE and state they are unable to do a workout  (due to illness/injury) will need to make it up during a supervised time as stated on the WORKOUT MAKE-UP SHEET.
