Starting Spring 2014 classes formerly designated as repeatable activity courses are now defined as active participatory courses.  Active participatory courses are defined as courses that are related in content, and include groups of distinct courses with similar primary educational activities that have been separated into skill levels or variations, and are separated with different student learning objectives or outcomes for each level or variation. Active participatory courses include the following subjects:

  • Physical Education
  • Visual Arts
  • Performing Arts

Students are limited to four enrollments within each of these course groupings. See the listing below for all course families.  For further information see the course catalog or contact Admissions at 916-660-7340.
