Extracurricular access bill introduced
Introduced by Senator Mike Crotts, Senate Bill 42 would add a provision to state law making students in private schools and home study programs eligible to participate in any extracurricular program offered in the public school the student would otherwise attend.
The student would have to meet the same eligibility requirements established for public school students in the extracurricular program, other than attendance at that school. Additionally, a private school student would not be eligible to participate in a public school program if it is at least substantially similar to an extracurricular program in which the student was participating at the private school attended by the student.
Home School Legal Defense Association takes a neutral position on such legislation.
