, 16 March, 2007, Polk approves private, homeschool student policy
If it’s approved, the policy will allow the admission of children who reside in Polk County and enroll in at least two classes at the high school. At least one of the classes must be held at the high school, while the other could be taken on-line.
A student enrolled in at least two classes is considered by the state to be a full-time student and is eligible to participate in all extracurricular activities.
So, it’s already state policy that a school-age resident can enroll in the local school for two classes, and is considered a full-time student? If that is the case, what does the resident’s educational status matter outside the times of class attendance? Aren’t all the school-age residents already eligible to enroll?
I’ve read that … in Maine? … that dual-participation is barred because of in-state rules applying to the various public and private school sports ‘leagues’ (or associations, or however they’re styled). Is that also the case in North Carolina?
