Off Campus PE

Off Campus PE (OCPE)

In accordance with local district policy, a school district may award up to four high school credits for physical education for appropriate private or commercially-sponsored physical activity programs conducted on or off campus. The district must apply to the commissioner of education for approval of such programs, which may be substituted for state graduation credit in physical education.
