Did you know that all sports give P.E. credit? It all depends if you have the sport as a class, which many athletes don’t have. Not all students can get the sport as a class because of their schedule.

“For example, in the STEMM program, students cannot take a sport during sixth period because they have a full class load,” explained Athletic Director Alfredo Korzenik. “So, they show up once the practices have started. Instead of sixth period, they’ll start after school.”

Athletes can choose to join a seventh period for P.E. credit or simply participate in the sport without being enrolled in the class. For example, soccer players might not want to be enrolled in a seventh period because their season ends mid-semester.

If students don’t make the team, they must take regular P.E. and they aren’t allowed to continue in the seventh period sport class. Students must take two years of P.E to graduate.

To clarify, students who have the sport as a class will receive P.E credits and if they don’t have it as a class, they won’t.

“It’s a misconception,” Mr. Korzenik continued. “So the only way an athlete doesn’t get P.E. credits is if they aren’t enrolled in a conditioning class.”
