The OCPE Program is a partnership between the New Braunfels Independent School District and approved off campus agencies that provide activities such as: Dance, Gymnastics, Swimming and Tennis. Please refer to the link in the OCPE section for a complete list of NBISD/TEA OCPE approved agencies. Only practice hours may count towards the state required time. Game days and competitions will not count toward the total weekly participation hours. Agencies must provide an alternative place of instruction during inclement weather. Students will receive a numerical grade for each six weeks period and a final numerical grade for the semester. Students may participate in either of the categories described below. Students may not be enrolled in OCPE and any other general Physical Education class or Physical Education substitution at the same time.
*Please Note: As determined by Texas Education Code, the requirements are different for High School students vs. Middle School students. For students in grades 9-12, TEC allows participation in a Category I or II program to substitute for the state physical education graduation requirement. Students in grades 6-8 are only exempt from the 150 minutes per week of moderate to vigorous physical activity requirement. Students in grades 6-8 must demonstrate mastery of the Physical Education TEKS by completing an online PE course before the end of the semester/year they are enrolled in OCPE.
In order to be placed on NBISD's approved list of Off Campus PE agencies, a facility will need to do the following:
