Bill would allow athletic clubs to stand in for gym

Associated Press • Jan 31, 2014 at 10:00 AM

Current law gives districts and chartered, nonpublic schools the authority to excuse students who participate in interscholastic athletics, marching band, or cheerleading for at least two full seasons, or Junior ROTC for two full school years.

The measure would add participation in a schoolsponsored athletic club to the list of waivers.

The House passed the bill on an 82-9 vote Wednesday. It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
