According to Culver City Unified School District’s Board Policy, students may participate in Independent Study PE in certain highly exceptional cases.  Students in middle school or high school participating in “demanding, regular, out-of school elite physical activity” (AR 6158.1) may petition to be excused from the required physical education courses and satisfy his/her physical education requirement through a PE Independent Study.

  • The Independent Study PE does not conflict with the student’s schedule of school classes and is consistent with the school’s PE curriculum and the CA State PE Framework.
