INDEPENDENT STUDY PHYSICAL EDUCATION
Under certain conditions, independent study physical education may be granted to an athlete in grades 10-12 who is involved in a competitive level professional or pre-professional program. Since these programs are non-accredited there are specific guidelines that Oak Park School Board policy has established with regards to liability insurance and "hold harmless" agreements. Additionally, students are not given a grade for these classes but will have the opportunity to have one or more semesters of PE waived. Students must apply for this prior to May 30th of the previous school year to be able to request independent study PE for the Fall semester. Participation in Academy, club, and travel youth sports teams usually do not qualify for Independent Study Physical Education. Independent Study PE is only available to grade 10-12 students who have satisfied the CPFT requirement in 9th grade.
