Open enrollment doesn’t lead to sports eligibility


KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. – With the approval of open enrollment for the Klamath County School District, student athletes thinking of transferring should know current eligibility rules established by the Oregon School Activities Association require students to live in the attendance boundary where they participate. Students may be able to transfer in, but they may not be eligible to play sports, with those eligibility rules still in effect.

    There has been no fundamental change in OSAA eligibily rules with the new open enrollment rules. House bill 3681 explains the transfer rules regarding sports, dance teams, etc.
    There a restrictions and exeptions in transfer rules. Contrary to some belief you may not transfer as many times as you want from school to school for athletic purposes. Open enrollment applies to academic choice and athletics is considered to be a privilage and is governed by the OSAA
