Will my child automatically be scheduled into Off Campus PE if they meet the sport and time requirements?
Even though a student might meet the sport and time requirement to participate in the Off Campus PE program, the campus will need to determine if they can create a schedule to accommodate the Off Campus PE request.
Who changes the student’s schedule to reflect off-campus PE?
After the application is approved by the Special Projects Coordinator, the counselor at the student's home campus will be notified and at that time change his/her schedule, providing they can create a schedule to accommodate the request, to reflect off campus PE.
Can a student be enrolled in more than one facility with more than one instructor?
No, unless it is ice hockey where there are normally two coaches (ice training and fitness coaches); however, only one instructor is responsible for the grade and should be giving workout information to the fitness coach. Again, one coach is directly responsible for that student to make sure they are complying with the number of hours required in the Off-Campus Physical Education program.
How will absences from school to attend OPCE competitions be addressed?
All absences due to OCPE competitions will be considered “Unexcused” for attendance purposes.

Students must still remain in compliance with the 90% attendance rule.
When are OCPE applications and payment due?
In order for the student’s schedule to be correct when picked up before school starts, the application and payment should be received by the Special Projects Coordinator by June 27th. Applications will not be processed without payment.
