Under recently adopted legislation by the Ohio General Assembly as part of The Core Curriculum, interscholastic sports, cheerleading, and marching band (the extracurricular portion, not the course) may be used to fulfill the requirement for the physical education requirement for graduation and substitute another elective area of study. Please complete the form below to be considered for this opportunity.
The following student requests the opportunity to receive a waiver for physical education by participating in an extra-curricular athletic activity, cheerleading, or marching band at Washington High School.
Only athletic programs sanctioned by the Ohio High School Athletic Association, cheerleading, and marching band will be accepted for this educational option. A minimum of sixty hours in a sport and successful completion of the season is required for a PE Waiver to be granted. No grade or credit will be issued. Therefore, it will not affect a student's grade point average.
Please remember that in order to fulfill state graduation requirements following successful completion of the waiver, another elective area course must be completed to meet Ohio graduation requirements. Furthermore, if a waiver is granted, physical education courses would not count toward your required graduation requirements, since you have waived that option.
A parent whose student is committed to completing two seasons of interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading and would like to drop physical education from his/her schedule should complete this application form.
For questions about this web form or the physical education waiver, please contact Washington High School at 330-830-3901 ext. 51117
Indicate the sport(s)/activity(s) that you plan to participate in during the next school year.
