So a few clarifications.
As currently written, if a child is granted an intra-district transfer, and both schools Principals, as well a the Superintendent or his/her designee agree, that child would be immediately eligible.
Example #1. Susie is zoned for Summerville HS. She wants to play soccer at Ashley Ridge. She applies to to go to Ashley Ridge on the grounds that ARHS offers a CTE program not available at Summerville. DD2 approves and ARHS admits her. She is immediately eligible.
Example #2 Mrs. Jones lives in Richland 1. She works in Richland 2. Richland 2 allows her to enroll her son in their district. If he was not already enrolled there, he would have to sit out for a year.
Example #3 I was asked about kids zoned for Beckham that may want to play at Wando in the future. If the CCSD constituent board approves their transfer, AND the Principals agree, as well as the district Superintendent/designee, then the student would be eligible.
However, as written, a parent in Johns Island could do the same with West Ashley, but not James Island because JI has a separate governing body.
My guess is this will pass the Executive Committee and then the Legislature will take it up and tear it apart.
