Guidelines for Home-Schooled Student-Athletes

Home-schooled students wishing to participate in interscholastic athletics must submit a letter of request for participation along with the affidavit for home education (and annually thereafter on August 1) to the Superintendent. The Superintendent or the Superintendent’s designee will make all decisions on student participation.

Students must continue to meet all the guidelines for home schooling (portfolio, testing requirements, evaluations, etc.).

Students will submit on a weekly basis attendance and academic status information to the high school office (form below). Portfolio updates must be available upon request for review by the Superintendent or his/her designee at the end of each month of participation.

The student and parent may be required to meet with the Athletic Director and coach prior to participation in the activity.

Students will qualify for participation based on the selection procedures for district enrolled students.
