• FORT BEND ISD OFF CAMPUS PHYSICAL EDUCATION (OCPE)  

    IMPORTANT NOTE: This program is for students that participate in a high level of a competition activity that requires several hours outside of shool. Category 1 requires a student to practice at least 15 hours a week for national competition. Category 2 requires that the activity follows a curriculum that is aligned to the TEKS. This is not an alternative to PE for students that don't meet these requirements. More details are provided below. 

    A student can request approval to participate in training at a private or commercially sponsored physical activity program that is not offered to the student by their campus's PE, athletic, or fine arts department for PE credit. The student's training and the program must meet the following criteria to be eligible for approval.  Parents and students are responsible for assuring the required number of training hours are met each week.  If an establishment is unable to offer the required number of hours the parent/student should make the district aware, so that the student can be placed back into a PE class on their campus.  If they do not meet the required number of training hours each week, the student will receive a failing grade and be placed back into a PE class on their campus.  

    Students/Families can apply to participate in Off Campus PE during two application windows, one for the Fall Semester and in for the Spring Semester. 

    Students/Parents are only able to apply to participate in training offered by an approved Off Campus PE establishment.    It is the student's responsibility to prove that they are completing the required hours each week. Until the program has submitted all required information and coaches have submitted all required information, they will not appear, and a student cannot apply to train with them. FBISD wants to assure all programs and coaches have meet all requirements before we allow a student to apply to train with them. 

    According to TAC §74.12(b)(6)(C) and (D), §74.73(b)(6)(B) and (C), and local district policy, no more than 4.0 substitutions may be earned through any combination of allowable substitutions. The substitution activities of athletics, JROTC, and private or commercially-sponsored physical activity programs may be awarded up to 4.0 PE credits toward graduation, 1.0 for the required physical education credit and 3.0 additional PE credits as state electives.  

    Off Campus PE Attendance & Grade Verification Sheets - It is the student's responsibility to turn these sheets in to their campus by the end of each grading period.  Failure to turn in these attendance sheets will result in removal from Off Campus PE and a zero grade. 

    There are two levels of PE substitution credit activities described in TAC §74.12(b)(6)(C)(iii) and TAC §74.73(b)(7)(B)(iii):  

    • Category 1 Off Campus PE - Olympic-level participation and/or competition includes a minimum of 15 hours per week of highly intensive, professional, supervised training. The training facility, instructors, and the activities involved in the program must be certified by the superintendent to be of exceptional quality. Students qualifying and participating at this level may be dismissed from school one hour per day. Students dismissed may not miss any class other than PE.  
    • Category 2 Off Campus PE - Private or commercially sponsored physical activities include those certified by the superintendent to be of high quality and well supervised by appropriately trained instructors. Student participation of at least five hours per week must be required. Students certified to participate at this level may not be dismissed from any part of the regular school day.  

    Credit may not be earned for any of the required state physical education courses more than once. No more than four substitution credits may be earned through any combination of substitutions allowed. These programs involve a minimum of 5 hours per week structured physical activity. 

    Middle school and high school students enrolled in Category 1 Off campus PE will leave campus for one class period each day, either 1st period or 7th period.  If their campus operates on a block schedule, students enrolled in Category 1 Off Campus PE are only approved to leave campus for the class period they are scheduled for Off Campus PE (either 1st period or 7th period).   

    Students enrolled in Category 2 Off Campus PE, do not leave campus during the school day to participate in Off Campus PE.
