For student athletes who participate in off-campus physical activities, often times the activity can substitute for physical education graduation requirements. For more information about graduation requirements, please follow the links on our website for HB5 Graduation Plans.
In order for participation in an off-campus physical activity to substitute as a high school physical education credit, the activity must be approved by Chaparral Star Academy and the Texas Education Agency. A list of current agencies can be found here: CSA Approved OCPE Agencies. Additional agencies may be added to the list at the beginning of each school year. Please contact the front office for further details.
Please note that students who are enrolled in OCPE program during the Spring semester are required to be assessed for FITNESSGRAM.
