Significant Policy Guidance for the U.S. Department of Education - Creating Equitable Opportunities for Children and Youth with Disabilities to Access Physical Education and Extracurricular Athletics. 

Recently, a report by the United States Government Accountability Office revealed that, despite legislation obligating states and schools to provide equal access, opportunities for physical activity are limited for children and youth with disabilities. The Policy Guidance is the initial response to the GAO recommendation that “the Secretary of Education facilitate information sharing among states and schools on ways to provide opportunities in PE and extracurricular athletics to students with disabilities.” The document will help disseminate information on improving opportunities for children and youth to access PE and athletics and to refer the reader to sources of additional information regarding the inclusion of children and youth with disabilities in PE and athletic extracurricular activities. The Office for Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education will be providing separate and additional guidance on the legal aspects of the provision of extracurricular athletic opportunities to students with disabilities to comply with the second recommendation by the GAO to the Department in its report.
