School District U-46 is in the process of providing opportunities for its students to explore a variety of topics in Physical Education by implementing semester only courses, called MODs. By providing PE courses for a semester at a time, it gives students the choice in dedicating a semester or a full year to a particular area of interest. This option lends itself to students learning various aspects of sports, officiating, physical fitness, strength training, and leadership opportunities. By school year 2022-2023, MODs will be fully implemented and allow for students to take PE courses with their grade-level peers. A/B=Freshman, C/D=Sophomores, E/F=Juniors, G/H=Seniors
Courses that are offered are:
Independent PE (Grade 11 only)
Lifeguard Certification and Leadership (Must be 15 years of age by the end of the class)
Strength and Performance
Team Sports Officiating & Coaching
