The purpose of said hearing will be to receive public comment on a proposed waiver application to allow the District to excuse students in grade 10 from engaging in physical education courses if those students request to be excused for the semester for ongoing participation in an interscholastic athletic program.  In addition, the District is requesting that any 11th or 12th-grade student who is enrolled and participating in at least five academic classes be exempted from daily physical education in order to take a sixth academic course provided they meet the required proficiency standards on a mandatory fitness test.  

The waiver application is being requested for the 2019-2020 and 2023-2024 school years.
