Off-Campus Physical Education
The purpose of the Off-Campus Physical Education Program offered by Coppell Independent School District is to accommodate students who are making a serious effort to develop high level capabilities and to allow them to be involved in an off-campus program that provides training exceeding that offered in the school district.
The Off-Campus Physical Education program is a cooperative arrangement between the Coppell Independent School District and an approved off-campus sponsoring facility/agency. Activities are defined as those in which a student works with either a single teacher/coach or with a team teacher/coach at an approved agency during the regular school year.
The following activities are currently considered for Off Campus Physical Education in CISD : DANCE, EQUESTRIAN, FENCING, GYMNASTICS, ICE HOCKEY, ICE SKATING, MARTIAL ARTS, GOLF, ROCK CLIMBING, ROWING, SQUASH, SWIMMING, TENNIS, ACADEMY LEVEL SOCCER, AND CYCLING.
Attention Parents: CISD will charge $150 per year (or $75 per semester) for a student to be enrolled in Off-Campus Physical Education. The fee will be used to offset the administrative cost of the program; for personnel to visit the programs to assure that the required TEA guidelines are being met; and for staff time required in processing the grades, attendance, and reports.
A waiver will be granted to any student who qualifies for “Free and Reduced Lunch.”Enrollment in Off-Campus PE will not be granted until the proper fee and annual application is completed. Make checks payable to CISD and pay during schedule pick-up at your child’s campus.
It is advisable that parents/student meet with his/her school counselor prior to enrollment of Off-Campus PE.
Return To School and OCPE
Coppell ISD understands that many community programs have had to make adjustments during COVID-19. Coppell ISD will consider allowing minor adjustments to the required number of days required for OCPE. The requirement for weekly hours in program, fifteen for Category 1 and five for category 2, will not be adjusted. If your program or faculty has a reduction in available practice days, you will need to submit a signed letter from your OCPE program stating their schedule. Submit this letter with your signed activity schedule to your campus during the first week of school. You will still need to complete the application and fulfill all other program requirements.
Your signed Activity Schedule and any variance requests will be submitted online for this school year. This request will come out from your campus the first week of school.
