Adaptive PE (Eureka Campus Only)

Adaptive PE courses provide education to meet the lifestyle fitness needs for students with disabilities, in a weight room environment. This class is also appropriate for those students without a disability but who do not feel confident in a regular physical education class. Equipment is provided to train students in the use of cardiovascular, resistive, strengthening, and flexibility exercises. An individual student contract is prepared based on medical verification of disability and baseline assessment.
