Under guidance of the PE Council, the Substitutions, Waivers and Exemptions Task Force has updated the Opposing Substitution and Waiver/Exemptions For Required Physical Education position statement from 2007.  SHAPE America is seeking input from experts in the field by completing the survey to ensure the position statement provides strong rationale and evidence as to why schools or school districts should not allow substitutions, waivers or exemptions in place of physical education class for credit.
