The Bismarck Tribune posted an article describing homeschoolers’ participation in the Bismarck area’s public and private schools. They need to follow the North Dakota Activities Association rules to join in. A public school principal says this:
Madler said the approach is similar to the policy that if a private school doesn’t offer a particular activity, students who attend the private school are allowed to participate at a public school.
Another school administrator reshuffled policy when he came on-board. That open door policy based on open participation administrative attitudes seems to be the case in some individual school districts.
“(Home school students) have a right to participate, whether public or private,” he said. “If they choose Shiloh as a place they would like to participate, we would allow that.”
Only a handful of home-school students have participated in sports at Shiloh, he said. In the past, home school-students were only allowed to participate in specific sports or activities. That hasn’t been the case since Forness has been principal.
