General Course Information and Notes
PE K - 5 is an access course which is intended only for students with significant cognitive disabilities. Access courses are designed to provide tiered access to the general curriculum through three levels of access points (participatory, supported, and independent), which reflect increasing levels of complexity and depth of knowledge aligned with grade-level expectations. The access points included in access courses are intentionally designed to foster high expectations for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
The purpose of this course is to enable students with disabilities to actively participate in a physical education program. Quality physical education programs increase the physical competence, health-related fitness, self-responsibility and enjoyment of physical activity for all students so that they can be physically active for a lifetime. In addition, physical education programs can improve self-esteem, self-confidence and interpersonal skills. They also improve problem solving skills, increase creativity, enhance social and cognitive development and academic achievement.
