2. In August of 2016, the State Board of Education revised its policy to allow local boards of education to decide whether and to what extent to allow 6th grade students to participate in interscholastic sports. The Board of Education is seeking public comment regarding allowing 6th grade students to participate in interscholastic sports. The Board is considering whether to 1) maintain the current status and only allow 7th and 8th grade students to participate, 2) allow 6th grade students to try-out and participate under the current teams’ structure, 3) create junior varsity and varsity teams for selected sports teams, or 4) create a 6th grade only team for each sport. PUBLIC COMMENT ON THIS ITEM CLOSES 2/24/17.
