New PE Credit Policy for Berkeley High Ultimate Club Program for 2019–2020 School Year
Policy: Starting in the 2019 – 2020 school year, to earn one semester of PE credit (i.e., 5 units), a BHS Student must participate in the BHS Ultimate Club program for the entire school year. Participation, which is tracked, means attending and being ready to play in all practices and games. Students who satisfy the participation requirements will receive PE credit for the Spring Semester. No PE credit will be given for the Fall semester, and no credit will be given to students who do not satisfy the participation requirements.
How it Works: A student must indicate when they register to join the Berkeley High Ultimate Club program at the beginning of the school year that they want to earn PE credit. A parent volunteer then works with coaches and captains to track attendance and participation throughout the year and, at the end of the Ultimate season, the parent volunteer provides the school with a list of those players who are eligible to receive PE credit for the Spring Semester. Students do not individually fill out or turn in a PE waiver form.
