PTHS Student Handbook 2022-2023

1. Enrollment in a marching band program for credit; 2. Ongoing participation in an interscholastic athletic program; 3. Enrollment in academic classes that are required for admission to an institution of higher learning (student must be in the 11th or 12th grade); or 4. Enrollment in academic classes that are required for graduation from high school, provided that failure to take such classes will result in the student being unable to graduate (student must be in the 11th or 12th grade). Students with an Individualized Education Program may also be excused from physical education courses for reasons stated in the Handbook. Special activities in physical education will be provided for a student who’s physical or emotional condition, as determined by a person licensed under the Medical Practices Act, prevents his or her participation in the physical education course. State law prohibits the School District from honoring parental excuses based upon a student’s participation in athletic training, activities, or competitions conducted outside the auspices of the School District. Students who have been excused from physical education shall return to the course as soon as practical. The following considerations will be used to determine when a student shall return to a physical education course: 1. The time of year when the student’s participation ceases; 2. The student’s class schedule; and 3. The student’s future or planned additional participation in activities qualifying for substitutions for physical education, as outlined above PHYSICAL EXAMINATION Students and transfer students will be required to submit a record of an Illinois physical examination and immunization record upon enrollment in Pontiac Township High School. Complete student health records shall be maintained according to State statutes. RE-ENTERING STUDENTS AFTER WITHDRAWAL Students may re-enroll at the beginning of the next semester within the same academic year under the following conditions: 1. Parent(s) or guardian(s) must attend conference with principal and/or counselor to discuss the student’s re-enrollment and status. 2. Student will enroll with discipline portfolio in the same status as when he dropped school. A student will not start fresh in the accumulation procedures regarding detentions and suspensions if the student re-enters during the calendar year of withdrawal.
