S.B.O.E. TAKES THE FIRST STEP TO EQUALIZE GRADUATION CREDITS FOR ATHLETICS
On Thursday, March 26th, 2009 the State Board of Education passed out of committee "Option 2" of the 5 Options that were presented by the T.E.A. Staff for consideration of increasing allowable graduation credits for athletics. "Option 2" would expand the number of allowable state physical education credits to four. Below is the "Implementation Timeline" suggested by the T.E.A. Staff to put into effect this option.
This is a "BIG STEP" in our efforts to put athletics on equal footing with regard to state credits for electives, but there is still a lot of work to be done as we begin this implementation process for "Option 2."
