New DISTRICT Procedures FOR 2019-2020 School Year
All facility and student applications will be online only. Paper applications will no longer be accepted.
Online Facility applications were open from late November, 2018 to February 8th, 2019.
Student applications may be downloaded by clicking on the 2019-2020 student Application in the right column, beginning March 1st. Students/parents must complete the online application and submit it by the due date of May 1st for the upcoming school year. Late applications will not be accepted, unless the student is new to the district.
If you are having trouble accessing the online application, please see your campus counselor or asst. director of health fitness for assistance.
Students involved in SBISD Athletics cannot be enrolled in the off-campus Health Fitness program – UIL rules specifically prohibit students from being enrolled in more than one physical education and/or athletic class.
It is the responsibility of the STUDENT/PARENT to notify the Health Fitness Office if there is a change in the student’s program and/or schedule.
The parent will provide transportation either to school for late arrival or for early release for Category 1 students. There will be no supervised areas for these students to stay on campus for the unassigned class period.
The Health Fitness Department is responsible for receiving and maintaining attendance and grades from the participating facilities. If a grade is not submitted for the first grading periods, a “no grade” (NG) will be assigned to the student. The Health Fitness Office will then contact the facility concerning their responsibility of submitting grades.
The private organization must agree to:
- Submit application and fee by February 8, 2019.
- Notify the health fitness department, email@example.com immediately if the student drops out or changes programs or facilities.
- Report each student’s grade and attendance for each reporting period by the health fitness department
- Notify the Health Fitness department immediately if the organization moves or goes out of business.
Failure to comply will result in removal of the facility from the approved OCHF facilities list.
To receive health fitness credit, the organization must provide at least 15 hours of instruction per week for Category 1 programs and at least five hours of instruction per week for Category 2 programs. It is the responsibility of the private organization to keep all records, duplicate reporting forms, and provide information required by the school district by the deadlines.
A copy of the school calendar will be sent to the approved facilities illustrating the grading periods. On the last day of each grading period, the director of the organization must fill out the online grade/credit form sent from the assistant director of health fitness.
