PE Waivers
PE Waivers are only for students who, due to a rigorous academic course load, can
not fit a PE course into their schedule. A maximum of 2 of the 4 PE courses
required for graduation can be waived when specific criteria are met. The credit
from those courses are not waived, just the requirements. 24.5 or more credits
are still required for graduation when a PE Waiver is approved.
Students who maintain full-time student status (defined as a daily course
schedule with 7/8 classes per semester) during all four years of high school
and meet all other graduation requirements may waive an initial .5 physical
education credit by successfully completing the following criteria:
– Two (2) St. Vrain Valley School District athletic programs at the varsity or
junior varsity level (two different sports; same sport two seasons); or
– 72 hours during one semester of an appropriate, pre-approved, structured,
and supervised activity outside of the school district.
• Students with an advanced course schedule, including enrollment in
multiple academically rigorous courses, may also request .5 physical
education credit waiver when combined with one of the above criteria.
