How do I add a home school student?

Submitting information and the required form for home school students can now be completed online through the Portal.

First, enter the student's core information (Students, Add Student) and answer the eligibility questions. The Portal will direct you to the online Homeschool Form if necessary.  The Homeschool Form functions similarly to the Transfer Form.

If you must sign out of the Portal to gather additional information for either form, you can return to it at any time by going to the Awaiting Action page under Eligibility and clicking the form button across from the student's name.

If a member of your school's central office staff has submitted these forms in the past, your school will need to assign that individual as your school's System Athletic Director or Assistant Athletic Director so they will be able to access the Portal and complete these forms on your behalf.  Detailed steps for these users can be found below.
