The appellant is a home schooled student dual enrolled in the resident school district for sports. Appellant did not participate in sports during the 2016-17 school year, although it was indicated on the Competent Private Instruction (CPI) report filed by his parents that he was in 9th grade. Appellant’s mother explained that she made a mistake on the CPI form and that her son should have been listed as being in 8th grade.
The appellant seeks reversal of a decision by the Iowa High School Athletic Association Board of Control denying an extension of eligibility beyond eight semesters.
ALJ concludes that the appellant did not meet the exception of extenuating circumstances so as to justify an exception. The March 11, 2021 decision by Board of Control of the Iowa High School Athletic Association is affirmed.
