Was Wondering When This Would Happen

A student enrolled in a cyber-charter school wants to still attend dances and play baseball at the middle school, but the attorney for the district had said it doesn’t have to allow it.
I knew it was only a matter of time before virtual school (and in this case cyber school) students would want to take part in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities offered by the traditional schols in their area.


So, should a student who has opted out of the traditional public school, who's funding has been taken from that brick-and-mortar public school and put into a cyber charter school be allowed to participant in the extra-curricular (note that we are not talking co-curricular, but extra-curricular) activities of that brick-and-mortar school?

You can probably tell by the way I asked the question what my answer will be.

This isn't new to PA.

I thought the reasoning why hs students can participate was flawed.

I've heard from virtual and cyber school teachers and parents that it has been happening in Ohio, Colorado and Florida - but this was the first time I have actually seen it make the media.
