PE Waivers

Ohio graduation requirements include 0.5 credits (2 semesters) of in class physical education (P.E.) OR a completed P.E. Waiver. To earn the PDY P.E. Waiver, a student must participate in two (2) non- concurrent seasons of interscholastic athletics, marching band or cheerleading during the first seven (7) semesters of high school AND complete the required paperwork according to the timeline listed on the P.E. Waiver Application Form and the P.E. Waiver Completion Form. Participation in one (1) complete season of interscholastic athletics, band or cheerleading counts towards one-half (1/2) of the P.E. Waiver for graduation requirements, provided the proper paperwork is submitted. The student must participate in the activity for the full season. There is no provision under ORC 3313.603 (L) to permit any type of partial P.E. Waiver excuse. Students must complete either the in-class option or the P.E. Waiver option. The P.E. Waiver does not result in academic credit. However, the Delta HS P.E. Waiver does fulfill the P.E. graduation requirement of the Ohio Department of Education. The P.E. Waiver must be completed by the end of the first semester of a student’s senior year. Otherwise, the student will be placed in the needed P.E. classes second semester to meet the P.E. graduation requirement. It is the responsibility of the student to coordinate, maintain and submit the application and completion documentation by the required dates for each season.
