Participation in extracurricular activities of public schools.
Instruction in courses of subjects included in a program of transitional
bilingual education which are not mandatory may be given in a language
other than English. In those courses or subjects in which verbalization is
not essential to an understanding of the subject matter, including but not
necessarily limited to art, music and physical education, English learners shall participate fully with their
English-speaking contemporaries in the regular public school classes
provided for said subjects. Each school district shall ensure to children
enrolled in a program in transitional bilingual education practical and
meaningful opportunity to participate fully in the extracurricular
activities of the regular public schools in the district.
