Student Grades are available online and are updated regularly.  If you have a question, please contact your teacher


                        A= 100-90%                        
                       B=89-80%                           
                      C=79-70%

Physical Education, by nature, requires regular attendance and participation.  Excessive absences or lack of participation will directly affect your successful completion of each quarter. 
 
 
Freshmen Classes:  50% of your grade comes from partcipation
                             30% of your grade comes from daily fitness activities  (strength/flexibility/cardio)      
                             20% of your grade comes from testing (written, skills, etc..)          
                                
 
Elective Classes:  80% Participation/Fitness
                          20% written/testing
                       
Students start each semester with 100% with the goal of keeping it that way.
 
Listed below are things that can affect a student's grade in a negative manner.
 
 
 
1.      Incomplete Uniform  (IU) will reduce the grade 2.5% for each missing piece of the PE Uniform.  Example:  black shorts or a green shirt.

2.  Each non-suit  (NS) will reduce your final  grade by 10% .  Clothes worn to school cannot be used for P.E. and will result in a non-suit.  (This includes “game day” attire for athletes)
3.    Class cuts (unexcused absences) will reduce the final quarter grade by 10% of quarter grade.  
       Cuts are determined by the RHS attendance office.
4.   Non-participation will result in a reduction of your final  grade as follows*:
    NP-5= Not participating to the expected level for each activity in a class
       period will reduce the final grade by ONE HALF GRADE (5%).
     NP-10= Not participating the entire class period will reduce the final
       grade by ONE FULL GRADE(10% ). 
* participation may be separated in to general class activities and fitness activities
 
5.  Tardies will reduce the final  grade by ONE HALF GRADE (5%).
6.  Each absence beyond two, excused or unexcused, in any quarter will reduce the final quarter grade by ONE HALF GRADE (5%) for each absence.
7.   Misconduct (M)- any unacceptable behavior as defined by RHS code of conduct will result in the in the loss of up to ONE FULL GRADE (10%) for the grading period.
