INDIANAPOLIS, IN - High school student-athletes that are taking online courses to start the fall semester will still be able to participate in sports.
According to a letter sent by the Indiana High School Athletic Association to all athletic directors in Indiana, the organization is changing a by-law. The letter explains the change, saying if a school is offering virtual or online courses this fall semester, and it’s taught by a member school personnel, they can still participate in sports.
There still is some local control on the matter. A school can make a decision making a requirement above the standard set forth by the IHSAA. For instance, a school may still require in-building attendance for athletic participation.
The letter also noted that “if a third party is delivering instruction to your students (teachers not employed by your school), and the percentage of courses being taught is over 30% of total number of courses offered, a waiver (for the school, not the athlete) is required from the IHSAA.
