Who can participate?
Students in 6th – 12th grade who qualify, submit a completed application and are approved can participate in OCPE

Can I do OCPE for a semester?
No, students are making a commitment for a school year. If you drop OCPE, you will be placed into a regular PE class.

What agency/facility can I use?
The list of approved agencies can be found on the OCPE website. If the agency you wish to use is not approved they will need to apply before the application deadline.

You may only utilize one facility or activity to reach the hour requirement.
Who changes the student’s schedule to reflect off-campus PE?
Students’ schedules are handled at the campus. Please contact your student’s counselor for any scheduling issues.
