In addition, we want to ensure they adequately address our issues as they pertain to our diverse membership as well as to the changing climate in education and the philosophical shift.
1. Change in NCHSAA Handbook policy regarding the attendance rule Page 121, Item 5 (a, b, c, d) 2. Addition of general LEA statement to NCHSAA Handbook The rules and regulations listed herein are the minimum state standards for eligibility to participate in a number of different areas, including but not limited to scholastic requirements, medical examinations, the felony policy, etc. An LEA may have policies in any of these areas or others that are more restrictive than the state requirement, but the LEA may not have a policy for eligibility that is less restrictive.
3. Out-of-State Students NCHSAA Handbook addition Page 119, 3(a) Any student proposed for a contest is eligible at the school to which the local board of education assigns him within the unit of residence of a parent or custodian within this state. Additional caveat 4. Transfer Policy (possible combination with Non- Traditional Schools Committee) A student transferring from a member school to another member school within the same LEA must sit out 365 days for athletic participation. The LEA may create criteria for immediate athletic eligibility for transfers within the LEA. A student transferring from a member school in one LEA to another member public school in another LEA must sit out 365 days for athletic participation. Exceptions for immediate athletic eligibility for transfers from one LEA to another would be heard by a special NCHSAA Transfer Committee.

Examples of activities that would be considered non- school-sponsored activities and MAY be done: Third-Party Outings: Coach or staff member takes students to a third-party camp at a non-NCHSAA member school (e.g., college-sponsored summer skills or team camp, etc.) where attendance by students is NOT deemed mandatory, whether actual or perceived (as described above); Bona Fide Competitions: An organized league is conducted through a bona fide third party organization where (1) the organization purchases appropriate liability insurance and pays for all game-related expenses (e.g., facilities, staffing, etc.); (2) students are not required to attend or participate; (3) student transportation is not provided by NCHSAA member school vehicles; and (4) students use their own equipment
