If a school allows marching band, drill team, and other non-sport activities to count as physical activity, does the activity also count for the P.E. waiver?

Answer: 

No.

The P.E. waiver authority has nothing to do with the physical activity requirement. Obviously, if a student has been granted a P.E. waiver for the purpose of taking one or more academic courses not otherwise available to the student; the student may have a tougher time showing how s/he is meeting the physical activity requirement. But there is no other relationship between the two.
