4295 Undue Influence
No employee shall encourage a student to seek a transfer from one school to another for athletic/activity purposes, or otherwise engage directly or indirectly in recruiting practices that may result in such transfer requests. Any employee who exercises undue influence to cause a student to transfer from one school to another school for athletic/activity purposes shall be considered in violation of this policy, and shall be subject to disciplinary action. The term “undue influence” shall be as defined in the rules of the Wyoming High School Activities Association.
Residence-For The Purpose of Determining
The residence of a student shall be presumed to be that of his/her living parent(s) or legal guardian(s). If a student’s parents are divorced or legally separated, residence shall be presumed to be that of the parent granted custody by court order or separation agreement. The residence of a student 18 years of age or older shall also be presumed to be that of his/her living parent(s) or legal guardian(s).
Eligibility of Students Who are Transferred
As a general rule, a student granted a high school transfer in accordance with WHSAA regulations shall be eligible immediately for interscholastic athletics/activities at the new school to which the student is assigned.
Student athletes who transfer from one school to the other without a move by the parents may be ineligible for varsity level athletic competition for one year from the date of enrollment. This will apply to interscholastic sports in which the student has participated at any level and/or grade during the 12 calendar months preceding the date of such transfer.
The above policy is not meant to replace or supersede the eligibility requirements for athletics/activities established by the Wyoming High School Activities Association.
