Update to Health and Lifetime Fitness Course Registration

January 11th, 2019

Summer Registration

Health and Lifetime Fitness registration for the Innovative Pathways Summer Program will be available March 1, 2019. This later date is due to two factors: the Maryland State Board of Education is considering graduation requirement changes, and increased numbers of students requesting the course in summer school.

Students will be permitted to register between March 1 and March 15 for these courses. At that time, students in rising grades 10-12 will be registered first. If additional spaces remain there will be a random computer selection for students in rising grade 9. This will no longer be a first-come, first-serve registration.

Registration for Fall 2019

Health and Lifetime Fitness are pre-selected as recommended courses for all rising 9th graders. Students are expected to complete Health and Lifetime Fitness in grade 9. There should not be an assumption that a student will be able to access Health and Lifetime Fitness over the summer. Student schedule requests should not be changed until students are officially enrolled in summer school.

If a student would like to participate in another elective, in place of Health and Lifetime Fitness, a Course Placement Review form and an updated four-year plan must be completed with the middle school counselor. Health and Lifetime Fitness are recommended for completion by the end of grade 10 and should be planned in that fashion within the four-year plan. Options may include taking the course during grade 10, evening school or summer programming.
