    @jh2914. How about read the past posts again. I said, IF having athletes play for teams and the athlete lives out of district is cheating, THEN, yes all three cheat. I never called it cheating until it was implied by others that I was. Plus, notice I never said football players but athletes because of the ones I know, only one plays football, the rest play other sports, soccer, basketball and baseball.

    @scheiss I was just saying would gladly meet him and explain what I meant. He is no teenager and I ALWAYS read my post before hitting send. He is the one who implied I was calling a school for cheating. If he thinks what i was inplying as cheating, again, ALL THREE high schools in Wilson are cheating.

    Sorry if I ain't the type to act as childish as some of the posts I have read lately. He implied that I was calling Hunt a cheater and I am not. I have close family that goes there and I attend there football games on occasion and pull for them as I have no son in high school.

    @ Jsh27896
    Dude seriously, do you have an ego problem? I was just letting you would be glad to talk in person if you felt the need instead of hiding behind computer screens. I do teach in Wilson, coach in Wilson, and just know what rules we have. Call it cheating or whatever, all three Wilson county high schools have athletes not in their districts because of the rule our county has.

    @Elem-Teach
    You couldn't handle it. Sounded like you were implying Hunt has done there's cheating. My apologies, please don't reach thru my computer screen and grab me by the neck next time I log in.

    @jsh27896. Dude what is your problem? I am not implying anything. I was just asking a question because there has been a lot of back and forth about players going here and there. I was just asking if any county had a rule similar to show how easy it was to transfer to another school. If I hit a nerve that is your problem. I work in Wilson everyday and will be glad to meet with you and discuss further in person. Oh yeah, by the way I could care less who goes to Hunt, Fike or Beddingfield. All three have athletes out of district.

    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.

    "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.

    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.

    @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.

  • trubelieva Nov 27, 2012

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
