Staff Reports

The University Interscholastic League announced that students who participate in remote learning this school year will be eligible to compete in athletics.
Schools across the state, including Hale Center, have announced the intention of allowing students to either use in-person or remote learning as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. The UIL’s announcement is a result of what the 2020-21 school year will look like.
New eligibility guidelines were issued by the UIL to account for remote learning students. Some of these rules include: being 19 years old or younger as of Sept. 1 before the contest or granted eligibility based on a disability which delayed their education by a year; did not change schools for athletic purposes; and is a resident of the member school district. Other rules can be put in place as well.
Schools must come up with grading policies for athletes participating in remote learning that will help determine if a student is passing at the end of grading and evaluation periods.
Days that school is not in session will be treated as a holiday to help determine eligibility for both remote and in-person learning.
A student can be eligible for athletic activities for the first six weeks of the 2020-21 school year if the student accumulated at least 2 ½ credits since the start of the 2019-20 school year.
