This bill expands statewide the pilot program currently available in three counties to students enrolled at non-Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) member private schools. This bill enables these students to participate in interscholastic and intrascholastic sports at public schools. Eligibility is limited to those students attending private schools with a total student body of 125 or less. This bill requires participating public schools to maintain student records, and private schools to provide student records upon request of the FHSAA.
If approved by the Governor, these provisions take effect upon becoming law.
