NYS Physical Education Regulations
The N.Y.S. Commissioner of Education Regulations Part 135.4 requires secondary schools to provide students in grades 7-12 with a physical education program taught by a certified physical educator. The regulations also provide school districts with the option “to allow a comparable time each semester for extra-class programs for those pupils who have demonstrated acceptable levels of physical fitness, physical skills, and knowledge of physical education activities”.
