A physical education teacher will be hired to provide instruction to nine seniors in the Boardman School District who do not have the physical education credits required to graduate.
Though the teacher will be hired for 75 hours at a rate of $18.41 per hour, there will be no cost to the district, schools Superintendent Frank Lazzeri told the board of education at Monday’s meeting.
Students who participate will be charged $150 per 0.25 credit hour. Students need 0.5 physical education credits to graduate. The class will be offered after regular school hours. Some of the nine students need 0.25 credits, which is 1 semester, others 0.5, which is two semesters.
