For PE 1 classes:
70% of the final grade comes from participation.
20% of the final grade comes from written work/tests/ skills tests.
10% of the final grade comes from cardio tests which are also essential skills and must be completed in order to pass the course.

ALL PE 1 students must also complete statewide fitness testing (PFT).  Students must meet the minimum standard on 5 of the 6 tests in order to move on to an elective PE course the following year.  Students who do not meet the minimum standards will be placed in PE 2 course for the following year.  See  available standards below.
