PHYSICAL EDUCATION INSTRUCTION
BARABOO SCHOOL BOARD POLICY
The School District of Baraboo shall not discriminate against students in admission to
physical education classes on the basis of race, color, sex, religion, national origin,
ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation, or physical,
mental, emotional or learning disability. Students may be placed in a particular physical
education class or activity based on objective standards of individual performance or
Boys and girls may be separated within classes during participation in contact sports.
Students may be grouped according to skill, strength or other factors pertinent to a given
activity. However, grouping students for all physical education on the basis of one test,
such as a general fitness test, is inappropriate and prohibited in the District.
Students with disabilities must be allowed to participate in regular physical education to
the extent of their ability. The Individualized Education Program of some students with
disabilities may require a specially designed course of instruction as provided under the
Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.
The District will provide separate locker rooms, showers, and toilets for males and
females. The separate facilities, however, will be comparable in terms of space, number
of lockers, showers and other locker room facilities. If any student believes that the
District has failed to adhere to this policy, he/she may bring forward a complaint in
accordance with established procedures.
