* Students may waive one semester of the required Physical Education requirement by successfully completing two athletic programs during the same school year, participating in Band for two years or by successfully completing 90 hours of athletic instruction/practice/competition of a pre-approved non-school program related to physical education/athletics/recreation under the supervision of a teacher/coach/personal trainer in an 18-week period of time. School Counseling will counsel registrants regarding this policy.

** Computer Science/Visual, Performing & Applied Arts may include credits earned in the Computer Science and Fine Arts Departments. Online courses, with the approval of the administration, may also be considered for this requirement and may also be used to fulfill a requirement in another discipline.
