INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Some home-schooled students will be able to play on sports teams at public schools under new rules adopted by the Indiana High School Athletic Association.
The rules require that the students must have been home schooled for three straight years and attend at least one class a day at their local public high school.
IHSAA Commissioner Bobby Cox tells The Indianapolis Star says the rules will give true home-schooled students a chance to play sports. He says the three-year rule will prevent disgruntled parents from transferring their child to another school as a home-schooler.
IHSAA spokesman Jason Wille tells The Times of Munster that nearly half the states have similar rules for home-schooled athletes to play on public school teams.
