The requirement for physical education is meant to encourage a student to maintain physical activity throughout the high school years.
To earn ½ credit of PE, the student should exercise or perform physical activity for 2 hours per week. Participation in a varsity team sport could count as PE. For every season of JV or Varsity involvement, ½ credit of PE could be earned. Please keep a log of hours. For more information on logging hours and calculating credits, login to your FSP portal and view “Calculate Credits” within your shared documents.
No Early Credit:
PE in 7th or 8th grade does not count as high school credit.
Check with the colleges that your child might attend.
One-half credit of PE is required for graduation by the State of Maryland.
