9300 Unified Physical Education
UNIFIED Physical Education -Not your typical PE course! Unified Physical Education will engage you in physical activity and sport alongside peers with and without disabilities, helping to foster important social relationships. This is a unique opportunity for students of varying ability levels and backgrounds to come together on equal terms through ongoing fitness, sport, leadership and wellness activities. Unified PE focuses on the physical, intellectual and social growth of all participants. Although not a requirement, it is hopeful that students in Unified PE might choose to participate as athletes and unified partners in Special Olympics Unified Sports. (CHS is designated as a Special Olympics Unified Champion School). Signature of previous PE teacher is required on registration form.

Employability Grade: 9-12
This class will offer a large variety of both life and prevocational skills. These skills are meant to support students’ transition to life after high school. They will gain skills needed for navigating the workplace and for making career decisions. Students will have the opportunity to investigate the interests, skills, and abilities needed for different jobs, as well as discussing resumes, job interviews, and steps needed for preparing to enter the workforce.
Younger students (9-10 grade) will focus on learning and completing school-based jobs. Older students (11-12 grade) will transition to a community-based job when they demonstrate workplace readiness.
This class focuses on individual needs based on students’ IEP goals in the areas of self-help/ independence, career/vocational, and communication.
Additionally, other students on an IEP can earn Employability credit for hours worked at a paid or volunteer job with proof of hours worked (90 hours/.5 credit). The decision to award these credits goes through the student’s IEP team.
