Independent Study Physical Education (ISPE)

Students who participate in organized physical activities that involve state or national
competition or performance may be exempted from the Los Gatos-Saratoga Joint Union High
School District physical education/sports classes if they enroll and are accepted into the District-approved Independent Study Physical Education Program (ISPE). This program is authorized under Governing Board Policies 6015 and 6016, and managed by The District ISPE Committee.

The completed application must include:

1) signatures of the student, parent, and authorized supervision coach or agency

After administrative review, students are formally notified of the decision, usually by the 2nd or 3rd week of the term.
