first_imgIn Indiana and many other states, high school students can change schools if they feel that school offers a better chance of improving the education they can receive.  Some of you might know that this process has helped organizations like the IHSAA fend of groups who wanted a separate state tournament for non-public schools.  The IHSAA can now stay and public schools can now receive transfer students just like faith-based schools have always been able to do.A lot of people see this open enrollment as a way for schools to recruit athletes.  This certainly was not its intention.  In fact, the school you asked to change to has the right to reject your application.  All schools must have a policy in place saying how they will accept transfer students.  The IHSAA has declared certain moves illegal because they were simply done so a student had a better chance in that school as an athlete.One non-advertised part of this open enrollment policy is used to calm the unrest created by certain non-public schools winning state championships.  After all, today we have magnate schools, charter schools, and faith-based schools.  In fact, we even have home schools.  We know that some kids still transfer for strictly sports reasons, but they are moving from one school to another because they have found an education reason for transferring.  The easiest reason they can use is “my old school does not offer the courses I need.”last_img read more
