Does your county have this?


Does your county have this?

I have seen several posts on here regarding students living out of the district of the school they attend. In Wilson County, parents can request and fill out paper work to have their child attend a school which is not their district school. I personally know athletes who attend One high school but live in the district of another here in Wilson. I taught the kids at a younger age and know where they live. All they did was fill out paperwork and had it approved by central office personnel. Not sure this would fly with the NCHSAA but it happens a lot here. I know we are a much smaller school system, but that is just one way athletes here in Wilson county move from school to school.

RE: Does your county have this?

no...

RE: Does your county have this?

Northern Guilford has a history of "acquiring" players from other schools. There's a lot of folks in Greensboro who would say they out and out recruit, based on some of the comments I've seen on the News & Record forums the past 2 years.

Students have to show a residence within a district to qualify for enrollment but they don't actually have to live there. This can be a situation where they live with one parent but have their other residence on the books. Or they can have their residence switched via legal guardianship but still reside at home. There are ways around the system but these are 2 specific examples that I know have happened in Wilson Co.

RE: Does your county have this?

If you file the paperwork I am talking about, your residence can be anywhere if approved by central office. I live in Fike's district, bit if I wanted my daughters to go to Hunt or Beddingfield (which they will NEVER do) all I have to do is fill out the paperwork turn it in to central office and wait for a response. Using this I dont have to have an address inside The Hunt or Beddingfield district. Teachers do it all the time and more and more parents are starting to find out about it.

RE: Does your county have this?

Yes. we have that same policy in Onslow County. However, there specific guidelines. To do this by the rules, the parent will have to provide a valid reason for the reassignment. Obviously, sports is not a valid reason. We have 7 highschools in our county. All of them have certain unique programs for students that the others do not. For instance, if you have a student that wants to be an Air Force Officer, they would probably want to to attend NSHS because it has the only JROTC program.

The same goes for certain technology programs, or even special needs. They also have to reapply every school year. If they neglect to reapply, their records will be automatically forwarded to a school in their normal district. Yes. Some parents do use this for sports purposes. Overall, I think that it would difficult to single out sports participation without affecting other extracurricular activities and clubs.

Once the student is assigned to a school, they must afforded the same opprtunities as other students. I transferred my son to another school. He was an athlete as well, but he is also wanted to be a mechanical engineer. NSHS has a twenty first century technology academy. He joined the academy and played sports at NSHS, and now he is an mechanical engineering major at UNCC. I understand that it can be abused, but one would hope that the parents are not just hinging their child's success on sports alone.

RE: Does your county have this?

@trubelieva. We started academies like your are talking about but they went by the way side quickly! This rule is now being used mostly by athletes around here, or school system employees.

RE: Does your county have this?

Wake County is currently working under a "choice" program. I know my sons had a choice of 4 high schools (Millbrook, Sanderson, Wakefield and maybe Enloe). As a result I have one son at Sanderson and the other is at Millbrook. I can't help but think it may lead to schools being more dominant in certain sports. For example Millbrook in girls basketball, Sanderson in Soccer and Wakefield & Leesville for football. I'm not sure what the plan is for next year.

RE: Does your county have this?

"Saint"... for a Wilson resident, maybe you should just stick to what's going on in Wilson County. You have NO facts on Northern Guilford, so maybe you should not comment on our business here and spread rumors. The FACT is that all football players at Northern are in compliance with Guilford attendance requirements. Any one suggesting anything else is either ignorant or has hurt feelings over Northern's success. Is that your problem Saint? If so, my suggestion is that you move on.

RE: Does your county have this?

@cripberger
how bout that basketball championship that NG was stripped of?? Thats fact. Dont know that it is still happening and would think thats where the rumor started. How bout that?

RE: Does your county have this?

@Elem-Teach
Why dont you just go ahead and SAY what it is you're implying??

RE: Does your county have this?

Crip, everything I posted was factual.

I didn't make the claim that NG recruits, only that there are plenty of people in Greensboro who think they do. And NG did have players transfer to the school a few years ago.

And believe me, I have no feelings either way on NG's success and have plenty of respect for what they've done on the football field. I'm just stating facts, my friend.
