NYSED Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Can school districts eliminate or reduce the day/time requirement for physical education?
A. No. Education Law 803 requires instruction in physical education and instructs the Board of Regents to adopt rules on how this must be achieved. Commissioner's Regulation 135.4 are those rules. School districts are required by Education Law and Commissioner's regulations to implement a physical education program that meets or exceeds the specified instructional requirements.
