Home School Participation Procedure

                                                        Home School Student Participation 
 
TSSAA/TMSAA no longer requires that the school system be notified of Intent to Participate by Aug. 1.  The Aug. 15 deadline for school notification remains.  Home school students must be approved annually.   The process effective immediately is :
 
a) Parent must contact Debbie Smotherman in RCS attendance office (smothermand@rcschools.net or 615-893-5812 ext 22127) to register their child as a home school student.
 
b)  Parent must report to her that the home school student intends to participate in sports at their zoned school.
 
c)  Ms. Smotheran will determine if the home school meets qualifications that would allow the student to try out for sports at their zoned RCS school.
 
d)  When verified, Ms. Smotherman will notify the personnel at the zoned school via email. 
 
   ** Note - A home school student may tryout at their zoned school prior to receiving verification from Ms. Smotherman, provided all other required paperwork (physical, etc.) has been submitted.  The student may not  participate in further practices practices/games until verification is received.
