New SC Law Allows Homeschoolers to Participate in Public School Interscholastic Activities

As you may have heard, a law just recently passed in South Carolina that allows home school students equal access to public school interscholastic activities. It is often referred to as the "Tim Tebow" law because it grants access to interscholastic sports, but it is not limited to sporting activities. Access is available for all interscholastic activities, and begins with the 2012-2013 school year.

Because some interscholastic activities have practices and camps
during the summer, it is important that home school students begin
the process soon if they plan to participate in the fall.

Information about the new law can be found at the following website a: There you will find a link to the text of the new law, and a link to a form a student may use to inform their local School District Superintendent of their intent to participate (required by law).
