Senior Health Policy Altered

A new policy requiring students to complete the school’s health credits by the beginning of second semester has led to many seniors being involuntarily enrolled in the school’s health class. Counselor Perla Pasallo said the policy came about because students didn’t realize how long it took to complete the course outside of school.
“A lot of cases came right down to the wire,” Pasallo said.
Many students have traditionally taken health independently.
According to Pasallo, the test can take multiple weeks to be completed because it must be ordered, delivered, taken with a proctor, mailed to a grading center, graded and returned.
However, completing a health class to graduate is not a new requirement.
According to Pasallo, no parents have complained about the new system.
