I.     Course Guidelines: In order to satisfactorily complete Course 3 Advanced
       Weight training and Conditioning it is essential that the student participate in all
       aspects related to the classroom and activities. The student will develop
       knowledge, ideas, and concepts through a variety of activities, games skills,
       workouts, readings, and written work. These activities will be used as a vehicle to
       teach the California State Standards for the course. Students will need workout
       attire, tennis shoes, 3 ring binder, and pen or pencil, everyday for class.
II.    Class Expectations: Students are expected to act in an appropriate manner which
       contributes to a positive learning environment, this includes:
                 Being on time to class.
                 Being dressed in proper physical education clothes and athletic footwear.
                 Applying teamwork as it is not only important in sports and games but it is even
                  more important in life outside the sports domain.
                 Showing respect for others (classmates and staff).
                 Showing respect for the equipment and facilities.
                 Having an open mind and allowing oneself to have fun.
                 The use of profanity is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!!
                 Food and drink are not allowed in class or in the locker room.
                 Students are not to harass or intimidate others in any manner. Please report offenders
                  to school personnel immediately.
III.   Grading Policy: ***Grades in this class are a reflection of what the student knows
       and what the student is able to do.***
             1. Students are assessed and graded in 7 categories: Social Skills,
                  Knowledge, Class Work, Personal Fitness, Home Work, Performance,
                  and Outside Activities.
              2. Not every day is worth the same amount of “points.” The value of the class
                  depends on the lesson and workout of the day.
IV.    Correct Dress- A uniform is not required however, it is required the you wear
       athletic clothing to class such as shorts/sweats, t-shirts/sweatshirt, and tennis
       shoes. If you forget athletic clothes to wear for the day, you may rent a clean PE
       uniform for that day. Tennis shoes (shoes that can be laced up: NO UGGS, flip-
       flops or slippers) are required. Be prepared, come to class dressed correctly.
V.     Non-Suit Policy-In conjunction with the counseling department and discipline
       office, we have developed an action plan for each day a student refuses to dress
       for class and is disruptive.

VI.   Tardy Policy- Students are responsible for being inside the gates before the
      tardy bell rings. You will be marked tardy and unable to dress for class and
      participate. An unexcused tardy or absence is not allowed to be made up.
VII. Locker Room Expectations:
              1. Each student is assigned a locker and is held responsible for it.
              2. ALL STUDENTS ARE TO LOCK ALL PERSONAL ITEMS INSIDE
                  THEIR LOCKER. STUDENTS ARE NOT TO SHARE LOCKERS
                  OR LOCK COMBINATIONS WITH OTHERS.
              3. The school is not responsible for any personal items that may be stolen
                  or misplaced.
              4. DO NOT BRING ITEMS THAT ATTRACK THIEVES (IPODS,
                  CELL PHONES, ETC). For added security bring a lock from home.
              5. Students will be charged for damaged lockers.
              6. No horse play in the locker room. Any student that is displaying
                  behavior that is not appropriate or a danger to others will be subject to
                  corrective disciplinary action.
              7. Locker room cleanliness is the student’s responsibility. All waste
                  materials are to be put in the containers provided. Open food, drinks,
                  gum, candy, breakable containers, audio equipment, and electrical
                  equipment are not allowed anytime in the locker room or physical
                  education class.
VIII. Medicals: Physical Education involves both mind and body. In order for affective
      learning to take place, it is important for the student to be actively engaged in
      daily lessons. Please remember that you are enrolled in a ACTIVITY BASED
      COURSE….
      Short Term: Sometimes students get injured or become ill, and it’s
      understandable for you to reduce your participation during the activity portion of
      class. A parent/doctor note is required and should state if a student can do limited
      or no activities. All notes should be given to the instructor prior to class.
      Long Term: Counselor and instructor develop an alternate plan.
      Make Up Work:
                   All excused absences can be made up during tutorial (with the
                      exception of Wednesdays, due to the shorten schedule).
                   Makeup work is assigned to ensure your academic progress, not to
                      be punitive. You are responsible for knowing when you have been
                      marked absent.
                   Non-suits or unexcused absences cannot be made up.
                   Four unexcused absences per six weeks, you receive a failing
                      grade for that grading period.
