AACPS High School Sports Counting as Gym Credits

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!

I am Rachel Hiesener, and I am a sophomore at Annapolis High School in Maryland. I am both a student athlete and participate in upper level classes. It is often a challenge to fit the necessary classes into my schedule, as I choose to take more AP and high level classes. Therefore I do not have space in my schedule to fit an unnecessary gym class, as I already receive my daily physical activity from my school sport. My goal is to eliminate this challenge for not only me, but also my peers who face the same struggles. I hope to make 1 season of a AACPS high school funded sport count as 1/2 of a gym credit, giving students the chance to take more high level classes, making them more prepared and appealing to colleges; while remaining physically fit.
