PHYSICAL EDUCATION 
 
The Culver City Unified School District requires twenty units of physical education as a graduation requirement. Beginning with the freshman class in fall of 2007, the state of California is now requiring that students pass the physical fitness test in either Physical Education I or Physical Education II, or take physical education each subsequent year until passing the fitness test.
 
The physical education student is required to dress in the required uniform daily, participate daily, and take care of their uniform and personal belongings. A gym locker is provided. The physical education uniform can be purchased from the physical education department.
 
All physical education classes are co-educational and may include students from all grade levels. Physical education courses are aligned to the California State Standards.

INDEPENDENT STUDIES PHYSICAL EDUCATION
This program is designed for students who are involved in a competitive or organized sport outside of school and who apply the first two weeks of the semester for credit/permission. The student must apply by PE/Independent Study Petition and get appropriate signatures to be turned in to their counselor at the beginning of the semester in order to be approved for this alternative. Petition must be turned in by the second week of the semester.
 
Students must be involved in the sport throughout the semester for at least 10 hours per week, Monday through Friday. Students will not receive a letter grade but instead, upon completion and handing in the appropriate petition and time sheets by the due dates, they will receive the mark “CR” and will gain 5.0 credits in P.E.* Students should see their counselor for more information.
 
* Beginning with the freshmen class of 2007, students approved for Independent Studies Physical Education will be excused from P.E. 1 and/or P.E. 2 during the unit in which they are training and competing outside of school. For example, a student participating in swimming outside of school for 10 hours or more per week will be exempt from the aquatics (dryland) unit.
