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 in early August through the Director of Health and Social Emotional Learning and/or Middle School Campus Counselors.
Sign Up for Sixth Grade Health Exam
Current 5th graders wanting to be considered for OCPE should contact their middle school counselor to schedule testing. Due to the closures for COVID-19, the 6th grade Health Exam will occur in early August with the date, time and place to be determined. The Director of Health and Social Emotional Learning, Jennifer Lyon, will reach out to those families who signed up on the google form to arrange testing.
