May a student be granted PE course credit for participation in Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (JROTC)/Cadet Corps?

It is ultimately the obligation of each LEA to determine how each particular class, as conducted in its district, supports its course of study for grades nine through twelve, inclusive. Whether JROTC/Cadet Corps may be awarded PE credit is the decision of the local governing board. In making this decision, the local board may consider the district’s course outline of the JROTC/Cadet Corps, the PE model content standards and framework, and the 2009 letter from the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
