The purpose of the OCPE Program is to accommodate students who are making a serious effort to develop higher-level skills in a specific activity that exceed what the school district can offer through the general physical education program.
The OCPE Program allows students in 6th through 12th grades to earn credits that meet the district and state physical education requirements. Students will be expected to be physically educated, along with being physically active. They will be expected to show accountability of skill development, learned physical activity and health concepts and social development through participation in their selected physical activity that is based on the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Physical Education.
Additional Requirement for 6th grade OCPE
Sixth graders who are interested in OCPE, must pass a Health Exam with a score of 80% or higher to be eligable for consideration for OCPE. Testing arrangements will be made through the Elementary Campuses in May.
Sign Up for Sixth Grade Health Exam
Current 5th graders wanting to be considered for OCPE should sign up to take the Health exam here. Students will be tested on their campuses the last two weeks of school in May.
Health exams will be scheduled for students new to the district by campus counselors in August. Please contact your campus counselors to schedule.
