Adapted Physical Education Program
The Adapted Physical Education department is committed to providing quality and tailored programs that build knowledge, movement skills, social well-being, confidence, and physical literacy in a positive and safe environment. Adaptations are made to ensure each student is afforded an opportunity for safe and meaningful participation. Our goal is for each student to embrace healthy lifestyles and become empowered through physical activity.
High School and Transition Program
High School and Transition aged students participate in a community-based APE program. Through units in hiking, bowling, ice-skating, rock climbing, boating, and fitness training, students improve physical and muscular endurance, problem solving abilities, and understanding in food choices.
Elementary and Middle School Program
The elementary and middle school programs emphasize selected fundamental motor skills that facilitate the development of movement patterns necessary for increased physical independence and mobility as well as the participation in sports. Motor skills and patterns are learned through individual and group games, aquatics, dance, and cooperative activities. The curriculum includes units in goal ball, basketball, track, beep soccer, beep kickball, beep baseball, conditioning, gymnastics, and swimming.
