'Tis the Season of Giving in Lake Washington School District (LWSD). Each year schools and district buildings across LWSD think of ways to benefit those most in need during the holiday season.
Physical Education Credit Options
To earn a high school diploma, students must earn two health and fitness credits. 1.5 credits represent the fitness portion of the requirement, and are met by course work in physical education (PE). The other .5 credit is met by taking a health course.
Special Circumstances to Access these Alternative Options:
In accordance with RCW 28A.230.05, individual students may be excused from participating in physical education (PE) otherwise required on account of physical disability, employment, or religious belief, or because of participation in directed athletics or military science and tactics or for other good cause. Students must fill out Appendix E of the graduation policy and list the special circumstance that applies.
