District Philosophy And Goals
1. District Philosophy – Physical education is an integral part of the total educational program. It is that phase of education, which provides an opportunity, through activity, for physical, mental, and social development and improvement of the individual to meet the challenge of life.

Physical education plays an important role in the development of the whole individual with an activity for every boy and girl and a program of physical fitness that will place students in the best physical condition. The program strives to develop physical activities, skills, knowledge, emotional stability, a spirit of fair play, a sense of accomplishment, and provides the experience of having competition with other classmates.

The physical education program aims for a strong, health body and mind that are coordinated to meet life’s physical and mental demands.

The foundation of the physical education program is activity: a. Activity involves doing, not lengthy explanations.

b. During activity students may be in a variety of different settings both inside and outside to meet desired objectives.

c. Activity can include a repetition of skills and knowledge through competition. d. Activity is fun and reduces the inhibitions of students. Physical education includes many activities that will enable the student to carry over into adult life interests, attitudes, and skills that will help him to enjoy fully a healthy, wholesome life and worthy use of leisure time.

At Pavilion Central School all physical education classes are taught by NYS certified physical education teachers. There is one full time and one part time PE teacher at D. Bunce Elementary School. At the Jr/Sr. High School there are 3 full-time PE teachers and one part-time PE teacher. PE personnel are encouraged to attend the NYS Health and Physical Education conference that is held annually.

Classroom teachers at D. Bunce Elementary School are required to supplement the PE that students are receiving with 30 minutes of PE on non PE days. This will be done under the supervision of qualified PE teachers and will be documented in the teachers plan book. Plan books will be collected by the building administrator and checked for accuracy.

I. Administrative Procedures/Policies

a. Physicals: See coaching requirements in Appendix E.

b. Fitness testing: PE staff will administer the Fitness Gram test in the fall and spring of every year. All results will be sent home to parents in a letter that outlines the results of the test and their implications. The mile run time will also be used in the fall and in the spring as part of a students grade.

c. Class size and grouping: All PE classes are to have no more that 25 students in each individual class when possible. PE classes are coed unless a unit of study would required it to be non-coed (i.e. Wrestling).

d. Use of non-school facilities: It is not the practice of the Pavilion Central School District to use any non-school facilities for implementation of the PE curriculum. Non-school facilities are used in special circumstances, for instance field trips that would require the use of non-school facilities.

e. Supplemental Personnel: the Pavilion Central School District does not use any supplemental personnel during PE classes unless required by a students' IEP. Any supplemental personnel that may be used would need to be approved by the Board of Education.

f. Summer school is not offered at Pavilion Central School for PE.

Safety:
Physical education instruction requires that safety practices be designed and implemented. All activities should be conducted in safe and healthful environments. Safety in physical education is more than proper matting, or equipment; it is an attitude that must be instilled into each participant.

A safe attitude leads to sound safety practices, where students and teachers work together to prevent injuries. Students are encouraged to participate safely and are rewarded for following proper safety rules and practices.

Several factors should be considered when formulating rules and guidelines concerning safety, such as:
Clothing – all students participating in PE and other extracurricular sports, are required to wear sneakers and to remove all jewelry.
Supervision – all aspects of the program (class instruction, intramural, extramural, interscholastic) must be carefully supervised. Mandatory supervision of locker rooms is of particular importance since accidents often occur there.
Equipment and Facilities – All equipment and facilities must be checked on a regular basis. Athletic fields, gymnasiums, weight rooms, and other indoor and outdoor activity areas must be carefully inspected by qualified personnel. Once completed, areas, apparatus, and equipment found in need of repair should be repaired before they are used by participants.
Organization – Sound organizational procedures tend to reduce injuries. Programs should be planned to provide a variety of experiences and meet the needs of each student. Selection of Activities – Activities should be appropriate for the motivational and skill levels of students. Teaching progressions should be followed, and students should have basic competencies before they are permitted to attempt intermediate and advanced skills. The skill or activity being taught should be appropriate for each student. The health, welfare, and safety of students should be the first consideration in planning all aspects of the physical education.

h. Alternative Physical Education: As a district we do not subscribe to the philosophy of offering a waiver for physical education. Every student is expected to participate in physical education on a yearly basis.

J. Athletics
a. Intramurals- Intramurals are offered to all students at Pavilion Central School regardless of athletic ability or special needs. They will be grouped accordingly by the individual running the intramural program.
b. Extramurals- we do not offer extramurals at Pavilion Central School
c. Interscholastic Athletics- See Appendix F, G, and H for policies surrounding interscholastic athletics.
d. Athletic Policies- See Appendix F, G, and H for policies surrounding athletic policies.
