Stop Waivers (and Online Classes) from Redefining Physical Education
Speaker: Gary Lemke, Founder and Connected Educator, Interactive PE
Date and Time: Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 3:00 - 4:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time 
Description: While ESSA identifies physical education as part of a "well-rounded" education, the erosion of genuine physical education continues due to credit flexibility options such as waivers and online classes. Every school district has had or will have discussions regarding credit flexibility alternatives to traditional PE. It's time to bust the myths. Now is the time to preemptively and proactively take the discussion in a new direction. Embracing the inevitability of credit flexibility options opens the door to collaborative discussion. Speak up to demonstrate why physical education is also "high stakes" education. If you don't, who will? Participants will learn how to take a leadership approach to advocating for responsible school district policy, learn how to address the rationale used to justify credit flexibility options and participants will gain insight into the decision-making process used by school policymakers when agreeing to accept credit flexibility options.
