Students in the Lake Washington School District need to complete 1.5 credits of P.E. during high school.
Because ICS does not offer P.E. classes, students complete the LWSD Fitness Plan.
Please read more about meeting this requirement below.
LWSD Fitness Plan (Written) for 11th and/or 12th grade: Physical Education Credit Options (lwsd.org)
Please make a note of the dates for submission; there are three opportunities in the 2021-2022 school year.
You do NOT need to submit the Appendix E form, as all ICS students will complete the Fitness Plan.
If you are a junior, please read through the requirements outlined by the LWSD and decide on a date for submission this year.
Seniors, if you still need to meet this graduation requirement, please get started right away and plan on submitting by the first district deadline.
The Lake Washington School District requires that students complete 0.5 credits (one semester) of Health Education. There are multiple options to complete the Health graduation requirements while attending ICS.
•ICS Health Online:
-Class of 2021-2023: Students may take Health through a LWSD online class for a period of their school day during either 11th or 12th. Those who choose this option will need an available period in their school day for class placement. Students take Health for one semester and then can take on a T.A. position (Teacher’s Assistant) for the other semester. If interested, students must sign-up in February during registration. – $0
-Class of 2024: Starting the 2020-2021 school year, 9th graders should be taking the 0.5 credit of Health this year at ICS. Since it is a half credit, it is a class that is only one semester long. If students are in Health this semester, they will be in World Music next semester, and if students are in World Music this semester, they will be in Health next semester. •WANIC: Students can take the health course at the LW Tech: WANIC Skill Center in Kirkland during the summer. This is an in-class option where students go to class and work with a teacher. Sign-ups are usually in April annually. – $50 •Online Health (Outside of ICS)*: Students can take the class through an online program outside of ICS and the district. This can be a flexible option where students can do it at their own pace and work on it anytime during high school. - $150+ (Online Programs – Red Comet, Keystone School, BYU, etc.) •Summer School Health: Students can take it at through the district summer school. – $450
*Please see Ms. Schwarz if you are considering taking the course outside of ICS.
Students need 1.0 credit of Occupational Education (Occ. Ed.) during high school to graduate. Quite a few of our courses offer Occ. Ed. credit including Film Analysis, AP Computer Science, Criminal Justice, Graphic Production, AP Statistics, Anatomy and Physiology, Forensic Science, etc. Students will need to sign up for one Occ. Ed. elective during 10th, 11th, or 12th grade.
Alternatively, the nearby Kirkland WANIC Skill Center offers summer classes for students and many of them can count towards Occupational Education credits. Classes taken through WANIC during the summer will automatically be added to your high school transcript. Students can look for sign-up information in March/April at WANIC.org
