2016-2017 Regular Session
This bill requires a school district that includes any of the grades 9 through 12 to adopt a policy to provide that a student enrolled in those grades who participates in any school-sponsored, interscholastic extracurricular activity that includes competitions in which the student competes against students enrolled in schools outside of the district may be eligible to earn a varsity letter awarded by the district. There is a long history of high schools awarding varsity letters to students who participate in "traditional" sports programs. This bill allows students who participate in other forms of competition against students in schools outside of their district to also earn varsity letters.
