Any thoughts on these policies pertaining to HS Athletics in our Guillford County Schools?????
from today’s News and Record at Click Here:
The Guilford County school boardâ€™s governance committee is in the process of hashing out concerns and reviewing comments on two new policies addressing student athletes and coaches.
The school board approved initial drafts of the policies on June 25. As currently written, the policies would do several things including:
Raise the minimum grade point average for student athletes from 1.5 to 2.0 after the first semester of their ninth grade year.
Require students who transfer into a new school sit out of school sports for 365 days from their first day of class at that new school. There are a couple of exceptions to this.
Require parents provide at least two documents proving their residency every year the student plays a sport.
Establishes an appeals process for families.
Require principals and athletics directors consider school staff and school system staff first when hiring head coaches. Nonemployees can be hired for coaching jobs, but the principal and athletics director must show they looked internally first.
Restricts any head coach or assistant coach from coaching children of the same age outside the school system or scouting for colleges or club teams or owning or working for a business that sells sports realted products.
Any thoughts on these policies and are we heading in the right direction with our new leaders Mo Green and Leigh Hebbard?
