Charter Students Athletically Eligible in Other Schools

The Utah High School Athletic Association has “created a way for charter school students to participate in sports and activities at traditional public high schools Thursday. The group's Board of Trustees voted 19-4 to amend an interpretation of its policies. The battle is far from over, however. Now it is up to individual school districts to grant the same eligibility, and several have balked at such a notion, saying they stand to receive inadequate funding from the state or the charter schools for their hospitality to the ‘traveling’ students,” reports the Salt Lake Tribune.
