EDUCATION CODE
51222.  (a) All pupils, except pupils excused or exempted pursuant
to Section 51241, shall be required to attend upon the courses of
physical education for a total period of time of not less than 400
minutes each 10 schooldays. Any pupil may be excused from physical
education classes during one of grades 10, 11, or 12 for not to
exceed 24 clock hours in order to participate in automobile driver
training. Such pupil who is excused from physical education classes
to enroll in driver training shall attend upon a minimum of 7,000
minutes of physical education instruction during such school year.
   (b) The governing board of each school district that maintains a
high school and that elects to exempt pupils from required attendance
in physical education courses pursuant to paragraph (1) or (2) or
both of subdivision (b) of Section 51241 shall offer those pupils so
exempted a variety of elective physical education courses of not less
than 400 minutes each 10 schooldays.

 

SECTION 51240-51246

51240.  (a) If any part of a school's instruction in health
conflicts with the religious training and beliefs of a parent or
guardian of a pupil, the pupil, upon written request of the parent or
guardian, shall be excused from the part of the instruction that
conflicts with the religious training and beliefs.
   (b) For purposes of this section, "religious training and beliefs"
includes personal moral convictions.



51241.  (a) The governing board of a school district or the office
of the county superintendent of schools of a county may grant a
temporary exemption to a pupil from courses in physical education, if
the pupil is one of the following:
   (1) Ill or injured and a modified program to meet the needs of the
pupil cannot be provided.
   (2) Enrolled for one-half, or less, of the work normally required
of full-time pupils.
   (b) (1) The governing board of a school district or the office of
the county superintendent of schools of a county, with the consent of
a pupil, may grant a pupil an exemption from courses in physical
education for two years anytime during grades 10 to 12, inclusive, if
the pupil has met satisfactorily at least five of the six standards
of the physical performance test administered in grade 9 pursuant to
Section 60800.
   (2) Pursuant to Sections 51210, 51220, and 51222, physical
education is required to be offered to all pupils, and, therefore,
schools are required to provide adequate facilities and instructional
resources for that instruction. In this regard, paragraph (1) shall
be implemented in a manner that does not create a new program or
impose a higher level of service on a local educational agency.
Paragraph (1) does not mandate any overall increase in staffing or
instructional time because, pursuant to subdivision (d), pupils are
not permitted to attend fewer total hours of class if they do not
enroll in physical education. Paragraph (1) does not mandate any new
costs because any additional physical education instruction that a
local educational agency provides may be accomplished during the
existing instructional day, with existing facilities. Paragraph (1)
does not prevent a local educational agency from implementing any
other temporary or permanent exemption authorized by this section.
   (c) The governing board of a school district or the office of the
county superintendent of a county may grant permanent exemption from
courses in physical education if the pupil complies with any one of
the following:
   (1) Is 16 years of age or older and has been enrolled in grade 10
for one academic year or longer.
   (2) Is enrolled as a postgraduate pupil.
   (3) Is enrolled in a juvenile home, ranch, camp, or forestry camp
school where pupils are scheduled for recreation and exercise
pursuant to the requirements of Article 24 (commencing with Section
880) of Chapter 2 of Part 1 of Division 2 of the Welfare and
Institutions Code.
   (d) A pupil exempted under paragraph (1) of subdivision (b) or
paragraph (1) of subdivision (c) shall not attend fewer total hours
of courses and classes if he or she elects not to enroll in a
physical education course than he or she would have attended if he or
she had elected to enroll in a physical education course.
   (e) Notwithstanding any other law, the governing board of a school
district also may administer to pupils in grades 10 to 12,
inclusive, the physical performance test required in grade 9 pursuant
to Section 60800. A pupil who meets satisfactorily at least five of
the six standards of this physical performance test in any of grades
10 to 12, inclusive, is eligible for an exemption pursuant to
subdivision (b).
