Exemptions from Required Instruction
If the religious belief and teachings of a student or parent/guardian are contrary to the content of a school subject or to any part of a school activity, the student may be exempt from participation. To receive such an exemption, the parent/guardian must present a written request for exemption to the school principal, stating the conflict involved.
If a student is unable to participate in a physical education class, the student must present to the school principal a statement from a physician stating the reason for the inability to participate.
Exemptions from required instruction do not excuse a student from the total semester hours required for graduation.
