Off-Campus Physical Education (OCPE - an alternative to PE at school)

Off-Campus Physical Education (OCPE) provides an opportunity for students in grades 7-12 to receive credit for participation in an off-campus, physical education/athletic program.

School districts are authorized by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) to substitute participation in private or commercially sponsored athletic/training programs (Ballet Austin Academy Upper School) for the middle school physical education requirement and the state-required high school physical education graduation credit.

Ballet Austin Academy upper school students interested in receiving a waiver to NOT participate in PE in their school (middle school or high school PE class during the 2015/16 school year) must apply to and follow the requirements set by their school/school district and enroll into one of the OCPE tracks at Ballet Austin.

Ballet Austin works with each school district according to the individual district requirements and guidelines set forth by the Texas Education Agency.

In order to proceed as a part of the OCPE waiver program and receive a PE credit through Ballet Austin, please complete the following:

  • Application process required by your student’s school district for approval by the school/district. Provide Ballet Austin with the forms from your school district. Please allow up to 10 business days for Ballet Austin to process paperwork requests for OCPE.
  • Application for enrollment (including payment to Ballet Austin) into Ballet Austin’s 2015/16 Comprehensive AISD OCPE Program* or Abridged OCPE Program.
    • *A minumum of 6 AISD students per semester is required for Ballet Austin participation in OCPE with AISD students.

Please be reminded that the Academy will need to have completed forms from the school district approving participation.
