Alternative Physical Education I and II Credits

(Effective with the 2013-14 School Year)
The Indiana State Board of Education has provided flexibility to adapt the high school physical education requirements for students who demonstrate proficiency through other means.
Marion High School provides the opportunity for students to receive Physical Education Credit through participation as outlined below.  If a student and his/her guardian wish to exercise this option the student will be required to adhere to the requirements outlined below.
  • One (1) PE credit will be given for a complete season of a MHS sponsored IHSAA sanctioned sport, cheerleading, advanced concert band (marching band) and show choir.
  • Retroactive credits will not be awarded.
  • A complete season is defined as: first practice to final event.  The student must remain on the active roster the entire season or the duration of the activity.
  • Disciplinary suspensions from the team or activity and academic failure may result in forfeiture of credit as determined by the coach, director, sponsor and administration.
  • At the conclusion of the season or activity, the coach, director, or sponsor will provide a roster of eligible students to the guidance office.  The guidance counselor will confirm
successful participation and place the credit on the student’s transcript as a semester grade.
  • Completion of the standards report at the completion of the season or activity is mandatory.
  • A Grade of A will be granted to all students who meet the requirements for the alternative credit.
