Approval Process for Off-campus Physical Education Substitutions:
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has modified the forms and instructions for submission of requests to award credits for appropriate private or commercially-sponsored off-campus physical activity in Category I and II as a substitution for regular physical education. District superintendents must apply to the commissioner of education for approval of such programs, which may be substituted for state graduation credit in physical education. CLICK HERE for instructions. Furthermore, TEA would like to emphasize the following points:
>> Written correspondence from the district superintendent is no longer required for this request.
>> The TEA will now accept only electronically submitted applications from the superintendent and/or the district’s designated contact.
>> District personnel responsible for requesting new or renewal programs for off-campus physical activity substitutions for physical education or graduation credit should review the instructions and complete the “2009-2010 Off-campus Physical Activity Approval Request” form.
