U.S. Department of Education: Promoting Educational Excellence for all Americans

Physical education (new Sec. 300.39(b)(2)) (proposed Sec. 300.38(b)(2))

Comment: One commenter requested that adaptive physical education be subject to the LRE requirements of the Act.

Discussion: The requirements in Sec. Sec. 300.114 through 300.120 require that, to the maximum extent appropriate, children with disabilities are educated with children who are nondisabled. This requirement applies to all special education services, including adaptive physical education. We see no need to repeat this requirement specifically for the provision of adaptive physical education.

Changes: None.
