Lutheran High School West PE Waiver
As of the 2021-22 school year, students have the opportunity to exempt the Physical Education (PE) graduation requirement by completing two full seasons of interscholastic athletics (including cheerleading) or marching band at Lutheran High School West. Students who select this option will not receive academic credit for the exemption. Instead, students will have the opportunity to add an elective in place of the PE requirement. The PE Waiver is eligible for students in 9, 10 and 11 grades.
Students must maintain academic eligibility and finish each season in good standing in order to complete the waiver. If a student is injured during the course of a season, s/he is expected to attend practices, meetings, and competitions that are not limited by the medical illness or injury in order to remain in good standing and to qualify for the waiver. A student who quits or is dismissed from the team will be ineligible to earn the waiver for that season. This includes dismissal for violating team, athletic department, or school rules. Students must complete two full seasons to qualify for the PE Waiver.
Upon completion of two full seasons of interscholastic athletics or marching band, students and parents should complete the PE Waiver Form posted on the Lutheran High School West website.
