PE FOR Private Instruction

A student is eligible for a maximum of 20 units (two years) of Physical Education per school level via Private Instruction, on a pass/fail basis, under the following conditions:

  •  If a middle or high school student is nationally ranked in an individual sport. This eligibility does not include members of a nationally ranked team.
  •  If a high school student is a member of a team, in a sport not offered at the school, whose typical schedule is comprised of multiple (minimum three per season) interstate competitions during the school year, and a practice schedule similar to the schedule of a high school sport in season.

Physical Education Credit via Private Instruction requires pre-approval by the principal or designee. If approved, the student shall be eligible for one fewer class than is the norm for the grade level.

It is the responsibility of the student to provide appropriate documentation including confirmation of ranking, if applicable, schedule of competitions, and required hours of supervised practice under a qualified instructor. All other requirements of IUSD Board Policy 6157 and Administrative Regulations regarding Credit for Private Instruction shall apply.

To review the eligibility guidelines by sport and to access the independent study form, please visit the following IUSD website: (scroll down for the form link at the bottom)

IUSD does not discriminate in enrollment in or access to any athletics program available. Admission to these programs is based on age appropriateness, team roster space, aptitude and meeting academic and behavioral eligibility requirements. The lack of English skills shall not be a barrier to admission to or participation in the District's activities and programs.

IUSD's facilities and equipment provided for students are comparable and equitable to both sexes without disparity or imbalance, consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's record. For additional information see (Board Policy 5145.5)


Participation in the athletic program is available to all qualified persons without regard to sex, sexual orientation, gender, ethnic group identification, race ancestry, national origin, religion, color, or mental or physical disability pursuant to the California Code of Regulations, Title 5, Chapter 5.3, section 4900 et seq.

A parent's "coaching job" is the toughest one of all and takes a lot of effort.  Sometimes in your desire to help your child, best intentions can end up being counterproductive.  Applying the rules for parents will go a long way towards fostering an environment your child can use to enjoy and excel in their sport.

California's Constitution affirms that students and parents cannot be required to pay money to gain access to educational activities, including extracurricular and co-curricular offerings such as athletics, nor can they be charged for materials and supplies necessary to participate in educational activities. “Educational activities” has been clearly defined to include extracurricular offerings such as music, sports and some clubs. Moreover, the rules described above are believed to apply to all affiliated groups supporting district and school programs, including PTAs, boosters and foundations.  This principal was legislated and codified in 2012. The district has since worked to clarify that parent donations for most educational activities are voluntary, and that students will not be denied participation if their families choose, for any reason, not to contribute.
