The Indiana High School Athletic Association has announced that high school student-athletes that are taking online courses to start the fall semester will be able to participate in sports.

The IHSAA sent a letter to all athletic directors in Indiana informing them of the change to the by-law. It says that 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.

But, “local control of the decision to permit a school to set a requirement above the standard set forth by the IHSAA. For instance, a school may still require in-building attendance for athletic participation,” said the IHSAA.

The letter also notes 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 Ń is required from the IHSAA.”
