    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 in the 31-33 classes 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. However, disruptive behaviors in class as well as being off-task can lower the grade.  We ask the students to come prepared, be responsible for their own activity, and remain respectful to staff and classmates.  Work is cumulative, and students are encouraged to be prepared for class and to put forth an active and positive effort everyday in class.
