Agenda Item Title
Public Hearing on Proposed Amendments to Policy JFACA, "Interscholastic Athletic Participation Schools"

Staff Present

​Carol Stamper, Chief Operating Officer

Sue Doran, Director of Athletics

Main Points

​Policy JFACA, "Interscholastic Athletic Eligibility Schools," is before the Board for Public Hearing.  The amendments align the policy with amendments to Policy JJJ, "Extracurricular Activity Eligibility," adopted by the Board July 2016. Specifically, the amendments remove the policy reference to the local attendance rule, which was removed from Policy JJJ.  One addition to the policy is the requirement that students must be properly enrolled in order to be eligible for participation in athletics.  The proposed amendments were approved by three of the four members of the Policy Committee on January 12, 2017 (one member was absent).
