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 exceeds 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, which 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 eligible for consideration for OCPE. Students will be tested remotely through Schoology. Please sign up here to have your incoming 6th grader tested in May. New students entering the district will test at their campus in August.
