According to New Mexico state law, Marching Band and JROTC, which have previously been accepted as PE credits respectively, now do not count as a PE credit. Many students, when applying for the classes, were told they were a PE credit (JROTC), or a PE half credit (Marching Band). Although the state has waived PE credits for 11th and 12th graders, 9th and 10th graders have to take PE in the next 1-3 years...of course after being told it was their credit or half credit. I encourage band members, JROTC Recruits and Parents to sign this petition and help overturn the rule. I myself, have been bullied before in PE, so this year I decided to make one of the best choices of my life: Join the V. Sue Cleveland High School Storm Regiment Marching Band as my 1/2 credit of PE. Thank you for your interest, and hopefully your signature!
