Advanced Physical Education Syllabus 2017-2018

Advanced Physical Education Syllabus - Eastern Wayne High School


The purpose of this letter is to familiarize you with the policies and grading practices of Coach Lynch’s Advanced Physical Education Class at Eastern Wayne High School. In order for your child to be successful in advanced physical education class he/she must dress out daily and participate in all of the required activities.


  1. No students will be allowed to participate in advanced physical education unless they are wearing the correct gym attire (e.g., shorts, sweatpants, t-shirt, and tennis shoes are required).  It is the responsibility of the student to bring the required gym attire and to dress out for advanced physical education class.  Students who do not bring their gym clothes or shoes to class will receive a minus two off their overall dress out grade.


  1. Dressing out and participation for advanced physical education is mandatory, and therefore, if your child comes to advanced physical education class he/she will be required to dress out and participate.  However, there are two exceptions to this rule.  First, if a student has a medical issue, then a doctor’s note will be required to explain the medical issue and length of time a student is to be excused from participation in advanced physical education class.  Second, if a student has a disability, and they are unable to dress out and participate, then a doctor’s note will be required to explain the disability, length of time excused and any limitations that are associated with the student’s disability and participation in advanced physical education class.


  1. A student’s Advanced Physical Education class grade will be a combination of Dressing out (40%), Participation (40%), and a Final Exam (20%).  Every student starts off each nine weeks’ with a grade of 100.  Each day a student does not dress out and/or participate the student will lose two points off their overall grade.  Progress reports will be sent home every three weeks explaining your child’s current grade in advanced physical education class.  If your child has below a 70 in the class, then a PEP (Personal Improvement Plan) will be developed and you will need to come in for a conference to discuss and sign this PEP.



I want your child to have a positive and meaningful experience in Advanced Physical Education class.  If you have any questions or concerns about this syllabus, please call the school at 919-751-7120.  Thank you for your support and cooperation during this semester.
