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?



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.
