GRADING POLICY

            Homework/Classwork:           10%

            Health Tests:                         30%

            P.E. Participation:                  60% (Dressing out= 5pts, Warm-up= 5pts, Participation= 10pts, 20pt total each day)

Tests will be given at the end of each chapter in Health.  If a homework/classwork assignment is not handed in or a test is not made up within two days of an absence, the grade will be a zero.  Dressing out for P.E. is a requirement for this class.  If the student does not dress out, he/she will be allowed to participate in P.E. if he/she has the appropriate shoes on, but will receive a grade reduction for the day.  If a student does not dress out and does not have proper shoes they will be sent to “Timeout” for being unprepared for class and there they will work on an alternative assignment pertaining to Health/PE.  If a student habitually is unprepared for class a contact to a parent will be made. If the problem persists then a referral will be sent to the administration. If a student is injured or sick, only a doctor's note will allow a student to be exempt from P.E. class without penalty.  If a student has any medical conditions please notify Coach Baker.  This course does not have an EOC exam.  However, a final exam will be given at the end of the semester during the allotted exam times.  STUDENTS CAN BE EXEMPTED FROM THIS EXAM if they meet the necessary requirements detailed in the student handbook.  The course grade will be calculated as follows:

                            1st Nine Weeks (40%) + 2nd Nine Weeks (40%) + Final Exam (20%)***

                                                                            3

***The final exam will be an average from the Health portion of the exam and the P.E. portion of the exam***

TEACHER EXPECTATION FOR STUDENTS

    This course will follow the North Carolina Standard Course of Study curriculum for Health/P.E.  Students will learn different games and activities while in P.E. and new concepts and ideas in Health class.  I expect all students to keep well-organized notes, complete all assignments on time, contribute to discussions, and devote study time for class.  I expect each student to come to class ready and prepared to learn new and exciting things.
