• Grading Procedures for Physical Education 

    Daily Progress Rubric 

    Each student's participation grade begins with an 80 average. You will see this as "Part Start." Students will be monitored and graded each class per marking period and their daily participation will contribute to their grade.  Students that achieve the “exceeds” level in 1 of the 4 topics of the Physical Education rubric will raise their grade.  Students that come prepared, are responsible for their own activity level, and remain respectful to staff and classmates should receive an Exceeds.  However, disruptive behaviors in class as well as being off-task can lower the grade. Work is cumulative, and students are encouraged to be prepared for class and to put forth an active and positive effort everyday in class.   



    Absent students will not earn credit for the day. Students are required to bring in a note to the attendance office of email Ms. Ioele with in 24 hours of an absence.   

    Cuts, are issued by the administration, and CANNOT be made up.
