WIAA Changes Position, Accepts Homeschoolers
Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:
As we had anticipated and hoped, the WIAA received competent legal guidance, and yesterday about noon the association dropped its claim that homeschoolers cannot play sports unless they enroll as full-time public school students.
The WIAA sent a message to public school representatives saying that it was immediately suspending the requirement of full-time enrollment as to homeschool students. The path is now clear for homeschool students across the state to participate in interscholastic sports and extracurricular activities.
Four hours later a family HSLDA was assisting received confirmation from the local public school superintendent that their son would be allowed to participate in the school’s football program.
A student aspiring to participate in public school sports should carefully study the WIAA rules, their statement issued yesterday, the rules the local school board has adopted, and the relevant public school’s athletic handbook.
The WIAA’s action yesterday is considered provisional until the full membership of the WIAA meets to formally change the rules in April. HSDLA is available to assist any member who would like our help applying to participate in public school sports or extracurricular activities, or who believes their rights under the new law have been violated.
P.S. We greatly value you and your support—it is a privilege to serve you! If you or someone you know is not a member of HSLDA, will you consider taking a moment today to join or recommend us? Your support for our work enables us to defend individual families and protect homeschooling freedom for all. Join now >> .
