Off-Campus Physical Education

The Austin ISD Off-Campus Physical Education Program accommodates students who are pursuing high-level skills in a specific activity that exceeds what the school district can offer through the general physical education program. OCPE allows students in seventh through 12th grade to earn credits that meet the district and state physical education requirements. Only agencies that have been trained and have received the AISD OCPE curriculum can provide OCPE credit.

Students in OCPE are expected to be physically educated and physically active. They are expected to demonstrate skill development, learned physical activity, health concepts and social development. These skills and knowledge are tested through participation in their selected physical activity and written and tested assignments that are based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Physical Education.
