Personal Fitness Waiver

  • Students in grades 9th to 11th can apply to waive the required graduation requirement of Personal Fitness class by meeting the criteria listed below and then filling out a Personal Waiver Form. The form needs to be submitted by the end of 11th grade.

    Failure to submit the form by the last day of the 11th-grade year will result in the student being required to take the Personal Fitness class senior year.

    Criteria for Personal Fitness Waiver:

    • A student has completed one entire season of a GHSA sport (excludes One Act Play, Literary Competitions, and Esports) OR
    • A student has completed one full season of a non-GHSA sport
    • A student has completed one season of Marching Band
    • A student has earned 0.5 credit in Dance, Cirque, or Physical Education elective class

    Non-GHSA sports must have a clear start and end date, a defined practice schedule, involve physical activity, and include a record of participation.  Program sponsors must provide documentation ensuring that a student has completed the above requirements in good standing.

    To receive the Personal Fitness Waiver, students must get a form from Bridge West or download it from our website to have their Coach or Director complete it and get a parent/guardian signature.  The student must complete the online "Personal Fitness Waiver Request Form" and turn in a hard-copy "Verification of Participation" form (with necessary signatures) to the Bridge West office.
