OVMS Physical Education Syllabus

There are three grades that every student receives in Physical Education.  Regardless of the coach your child is with, the following guidelines apply…

Participation/Effort/Academics

This part of the student’s grade is partially based on a possible 10 pts. which are earned every class period. The daily points are divided up into 3 points for the daily run and 7 points for effort and participation.

Students also accumulate points each trimester through graded runs.  The two graded runs we use are  the "Mile” and the “Continuous Jog”.  These runs are each worth 10 points.  In addition, the students will go through fitness testing that includes Push-Ups, Curl-Ups, and the Sit And Reach.  *These fitness tests are scored according to state standards and points are earned based on the student’s performance.

There may also be a standards based skill test depending on the unit of study.

Students may lose points for lack of participation, poor effort, failing the daily run, poor behavior, or chewing gum.  The amount of point deductions for each of these infractions are up to the coach’s discretion depending on the frequency and severity of the student’s behavior.

Points lost for behavior cannot be made up.


Work Habits

This portion of the student’s grade is largely based on their academic grade.  However, other considerations such as a student not improving on their push-up score over the trimester and or effort level during class time, can affect the final grade..


Citizenship

This piece of the student’s grade is driven by a number of things.  Does the student come to class regularly?  Are they on time?  Are they prepared for class...for example: Do they need loaner clothes?  Is the student following school wide expectations...for example: Are they chewing gum?  If a student does bring gum to class they will automatically lose one letter grade in Citizenship.

Below are the rubrics for each of these additional grades the students will earn each trimester...
