Public school activities open to all, 28 June 2007, Potomac News, Woodbridge, Virginia Next year, homeschool and private school pupils will have the option of participating in extracurricular activities in Prince William County Public Schools for the first time.
In 2004, the county School Board approved a partial enrollment policy to allow homeschool and private school pupils to enroll in up to two credit-bearing courses at the middle or high school in their attendance area.
A revision to that policy, unanimously approved by the board last week, will allow those pupils to also participate in some extracurricular activities.
At the meeting, School Board members said that opening classes and extracurricular activities to homeschool and private school pupils will not cost the school district any money. Also, the classes and activities will be offered to non-public school pupils only if space allows, so no public school pupils will be displaced from a class or activity.
