Students many earn PE credit through sports in their later high school years. In 10th grade and beyond, if you make a CHS athletic team, remain eligible and successfully complete the entire season (a season is considered to be "complete" at the discretion of the coach or athletic director), you can earn five credits of PE, provided you do not exceed earning 70 credits per year.
You must have 20 credits of PE in order to graduate from Cupertino High School. You will have earned 10 of these credits by successfully completing a year of 9th grade PE. You can earn the remainder by simply taking another full year of PE sometime in 10th through 12th grade (it is strongly recommended to fulfill this requirement during 10th grade, as 11th grade is academically intensive and most seniors don't want to take PE), or through participation in a CHS athletic team.
Students can play one sport and earn 5 credits each year or play multiple sports and earn up to 10 credits each year.
When choosing your classes, you would select 'PE Athletics'. Since you cannot earn more than 70 credits in one school year, if you are enrolled in 7 classes, your team sport would not earn any credit.
Once your PE requirement is met, athletic team participation can earn elective credit so long as you are in 6 classes or less.
