  8. 8. PE Waivers • To maintain compliance with the Texas Education Code (19 TAC Chapter 74) and provide training opportunities for Olympic quality athletes, Clear Creek ISD offers students a waiver process for Off-Campus PE Programs. The belief behind this waiver program is to provide the opportunity to protect the academic success of an elite Olympic caliber athlete and to avoid possible injury in the regular PE class that may compromise his/her continued participation in their off-campus program. • Students interested in participating in alternate PE programs must apply each year for a PE waiver • PE Waiver applications are available online and due to the district office by April 25th 2014.
  9. 9. Schedule Change Requests After the first 10 school days, schedule change requests will only be considered for the following reasons: – Student has already taken and passed the course. – Student does not have the pre-requisite(s) for the class. – Student has been dismissed from a program where approval must be granted for placement. – Student does not have a full schedule. – Data entry error (class listed twice, free period, etc.) has occurred.
  10. 10. Level Changes Course level changes will be considered at the end of the first six weeks and at the end of the first nine weeks of each course. Level changes for full year courses are considered during the fall semester only. To be considered for a lower level class: – Parent Conference is required – Student must have attended tutorials – Completed homework assignments If these conditions are met, and the student is earning less than a grade of 75, that student will be considered for a change. Final approval will depend upon space availability in the regular class.
