House Bill 1123: Broadens Homeschool Student Access to Public School Sports, Interscholastic Activities
Sponsors:
Representatives Peterson (Sue), Brunner, Dennert, Jamison, and Rasmussen and Senators Monroe, Cronin, Jensen (Phil), and Stalzer.
Summary:

Current law allows a homeschool student to participate in public school sports, etc., only if the local school board approves. House Bill 1123 would instead give homeschoolers the right to participate, but the public school would have the option of requiring the student to enroll in one public school class. This would apply to all activities governed by the South Dakota High School Activities Association.

HSLDA's Position:
Neutral.

South Dakota Christian Home Educators believes it is important to amend the bill so that public schools do not have the right to demand that the student take one class.

Action Requested:
None at this time
