Course Expectations, Goals & RoutinesPHYSICALS: All Advanced Fitness students are required to have a physical on file in the athletic office. If you do not have a physical you will be withdrawn from advanced fitness and your counselor will meet with you to discuss another class alternative.UNIFORMS: Advanced Physical Education uniforms are required. Uniforms are to be purchased in the bookstore. The cost is $15.00 ($7.50 for black shirt, $7.50 for purple mesh shorts). Socks and GYM shoes are required. NO JEWELRY IS TO BE WORN. This is a safety concern. Any student wearing jewelry will receive a non-dress/non-participation. New piercing is not an acceptable excuse.NON-DRESS/NON-PARTICIPATION POLICY: 1st ND/NP= Warning and 8 point deduction 2nd ND/NP= Phone call home and 8 point deduction 3rd ND/NP= Conference with assistant principal and 8 point deduction 4th ND/NP = W/F from class (“F” on your transcript) Students will wear the entire advance P.E. uniform to class even if he/she does not participate. That means if you have a doctor’s note stating that you cannot participate in the activity you still must get dressed. If you do not dress you will be given a non-dress/non-participation and will be deducted 8 points for the day. Doctors notes should be specific and have limitations stated on the note. All missed work must be made up in the cybex room even if there is a doctor’s note (after you are cleared to participate). This class is mostly graded on physical participation and all missed days must be made up. A non-dress/non-participation will be issued if the student does not dress A non-dress/non-participation will be issued if proper shoes are not worn and not tied (safety reasons) A non-dress/non-participation will be issued if full uniform is not worn properly or altered in any way A non-dress/non-participation will be issued if anything is worn under your uniform except underwear and that should not be seen (no shorts should be worn under your advanced uniform shorts) A non-dress/non-participation will be issued if any part of the uniform is missing and the full 8 points will be deducted. If a uniform is lost or stolen is must be replaced. This is not an excuse not to dress or participate. Lock your uniform up in your locker daily!LOCKS, LOCKERS, AND LOCKER ROOM: Gum, food, or drink is not allowed in the locker room or in the gym areas. Each student will be issued a lock and a locker. All items must be locked and not left out on the benches. Students should NOT bring any valuable items with them to class (cell phones, money, ipods, etc.) All students are responsible for locking their own locker daily. If a lock is lost or missing, report to your teacher immediately and a debt slip will be given and a new lock will be issued. Students are not allowed to share lockers. The locker room must be kept clean and orderly. No glass bottles, running, or horseplay is allowed!CLASS PROCEDURES: Students must be in the physical education hallway before the bell or they are tardy. Each tardy will result in lunges and a tardy slip. After the fourth tardy the student will be removed from the class. Students will have 6-8 minutes to dress after the bell rings. After the student is dressed they will walk down to the hall of flags and SIT on the steps and wait quietly until class begins. Advanced physical education students are given more responsibility and are to be the leaders in the hallway. No running, yelling, or horseplay will be permitted in the hallways while walking down to the hall of flags. Consequences will be issued (lunges) if rules are not followed. Students will be dismissed by the teacher to walk back up to the locker room to change. Students will be given 10 minutes to change and get ready for their next class. Students must stay in the locker room until the bell rings. All injuries must be reported to your teacher immediately.GRADING SYSTEM: Standard grading scale applies. Participation will be the major component of your grade. Other areas that will be graded include: endurance run, written assignments, quizzes, and completed weight sheets for class. A student is allowed only 2 absences per six week grading period before participation points are lost. After the 2 absences, four points will be deducted for each additional absence. Only excused absences can be made up. Make-ups can be completed before or after school in the Cybex room. This will involve a 45 minute workout in the Cybex room. Students must sign in upon arriving and sign out when leaving. Only one non-dress/non-participation can be made up. A student must go twice to the Cybex room (4 points each time) to make up a non-dress/non-participation. Up to 8 points of extra credit can be earned per grading period as well by working out in the Cybex room. A final exam will also be given at the end of the trimester which counts for 20% of your overall grade.(Enter Course expectations, goals & routines here)Course Description
ELECTIVE PHYSICAL EDUCATION (L) (Advanced Fitness)
Elective Physical Education, a course based on selected standards from the Indiana’s Academic Standards for Physical Education, identifies what a student should know and be able to do as a result of a quality physical education program. The goal of a physically educated student is to maintain appropriate levels of cardio-respiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition necessary for a healthy and productive life. Elective Physical Education promotes lifetime sport and recreational activities and provides an opportunity for an in-depth study in one or more specific areas. A minimum of two of the following activities should be included: team sports; dual sports activities; individual physical activities; outdoor pursuits; self-defense and marital arts; aquatics; gymnastics; and dance. It includes the study of physical development concepts and principles of sport and exercise as well as opportunities to develop or refine skills and attitudes that promote lifelong fitness. Students have the opportunity to design and develop an appropriate personal fitness program that enables them to achieve a desired level of fitness. Ongoing assessment includes both written and performance-based skill evaluation. Individual assessments may be modified for individuals with disabilities, in addition to those with IEP’s and 504 plans (e.g., chronic illnesses, temporary injuries, obesity, etc.). See 511 IAC 7-27-9, 7-27-11.
