May a school refuse to allow non-school activities to count as physical activity?

Answer: 

Yes, but the school may not require students to participate in interscholastic sports or other school activities, and the school must make sure that it offers students the opportunity to meet the physical activity requirement without reducing instructional time for academic courses.
