Or should we ask, “End of transfers in Guilford County?”
They had their big spring meeting of the NCHSAA on Wednesday and they have added new restrictions on the transfers that can and can not occur and what happens if you do transfer for athletics only…No sports for you for 365 days….Are there ways to get around this new rule? We are about to find out, new enrollment sheets for 2013/2014 are due out soon….
Here is the complete content of how the new ruling reads and you will need to read it a few times, to make it all out…..
A new statewide transfer policy for athletics was passed by the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Board of Directors.
–After initial entry into ninth grade and absent a bona fide move as provided in the Residence section in the NCHSAA Handbook:
–a student transferring from a member school to another member school within the same local educational agency (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 (without a bona fide change of residence) must sit out 365 days for athletic participation. Exceptions for immediate athletic eligibility for transfers from one LEA to a different LEA will be heard by a special NCHSAA Transfer Committee.
