JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) — The Jackson-Madison County schools will let home-schooled students play interscholastic athletics.
On a 7-1 vote Thursday night, the board decided to allow the students to play on public school teams. Their parents must show proof of the students' health and pay a $150 activity fee per sport, according to The Jackson Sun.
The grades and records of home-schooled students must be monitored by principals and coaches to make certain they're eligible to participate in sports at their zoned school.
