Summer School 2018 Online PE-9 and PE-10:
Students should expect to dedicate approximately 6 hours a day to this course if taken during Summer School. Students will work in Blackboard to submit written assignments and workout logs, take quizzes and tests, and post in the discussion board. Students also participate in Blackboard (Bb) Collaborate daily class meetings and complete 2 daily workouts. Due dates are emailed to the students in advance and posted on Blackboard for student access. During the Summer, assignments are due by 11 pm every night, Monday through Friday.

Typical student class day for Summer 2018 Online PE-10:
Workouts are completed using a fitness tracker/heart rate monitor (HRM) and fitness logs. The fitness tracking equipment will be loaned to the students at the first class meeting. Students are required to work out 2 times per day for 30 minutes each workout using the fitness tracking equipment. While working out and wearing your fitness tracking equipment you will be working in either the 'fat burning' zone (about 110-130 beats per minute), or in the 'aerobic heart rate' zone (about 133-175 beats per minute). Students will upload their workouts for teachers to view and monitor the workout data. The fitness tracker app can be used on smartphones or computers. The fitness trackers cannot be used in water.
Blackboard “Collaborate” is an online 'virtual' meeting room in which teachers can lead an interactive, discussion-based lesson. These meetings take place online, last approximately one hour and require student participation through use of a microphone, headphones, and on-screen interactive tools. During summer school these online sessions are held in the mornings with a possible additional afternoon session. Daily participation is mandatory. Teachers will communicate the time for the daily meeting in the 'Welcome' emails to students and parents.
There are daily deadlines. Assignments are due by a set time each day, usually 10 or 11 pm. There is no room for late work or extended deadlines during the summer because of the intense pace. Students may request an extension from the teacher for extenuating circumstances but not to be granted on an ongoing basis.
We will meet once at the beginning of the course to issue fitness tracking equipment, collect required forms, and complete the Virginia Wellness pre-testing. This is a mandatory session for the students to attend with a parent/guardian.
There will also be another face-to-face meeting near the end of the course to collect fitness tracking equipment and complete the Virginia Wellness post-testing. These meetings last 2-4 hours.
PE-10 Summer classes will also meet an additional day to take the Driver Education Exam.
Please see the Summer Learning Online Programs page for the dates, times and locations of these meetings for Summer 2018.
The Online Campus follows all FCPS and Virginia requirements for school attendance. Students must be active in their online class on a daily basis in summer school. The pace is increased in Summer School Online PE, and each day is equivalent to 8 days of the school year. The teacher will notify the parents if the student does not submit work for one day of summer school, equating to 8 days of absence in the regular school year. If the student misses the equivalent of another full day of summer school work, then the student is withdrawn from the course for non-attendance. There is no tuition refund for attendance withdrawals. Our goal is to get students to receive credit for graduation, but if student cannot meet the requirements of the summer online environment then he/she will need to take the course in another setting.
All PE-10 students will complete the Driver Education curriculum.
Online PE students will complete the Driver Education curriculum through a separate online provider, VADETS, at http://www.vadriveredu.org/login/index.php
The cost of this program is $109.00.
The Online PE teacher will provide the registration form and directions on how to start.
The VADETS program will assign an instructor who will guide the students through the 10 VADETS modules. Each module is comprised of a workbook, quizzes and a test that will be tracked by VADETS. Each module is designed to take approximately 3 hours in order to meet the state requirement of 30-36 hours instructional time. Student work will be monitored by a VADETS instructor. At the end of Driver’s Education, summer school students will take their final test at the Online Campus. DEC-1 cards will be issued by VADETS after completing all requirements.
You may still take Online Health & PE-10 even if you have already completed Driver Education. In that case, the student would not repeat the full Driver Ed unit, but would complete the FCPS Health Curriculum assignments that enhance the PE-10 curriculum. Students will be asked to provide documentation to their Online PE teacher that they have completed Driver Ed if applicable.
