ADOPTION OF PWCS REGULATION 721-2
STUDENT TRANSFERS - HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY
With the adoption of the new PWCS Regulation 721-2, changes have been added that impact a student’s Virginia High School League eligibility for participation in interscholastic sports at the high school level. Briefly stated, the following excerpts from Regulation 721-2 describe possible impact if a student transfers from one school to another:
· Once a student establishes eligibility in a high school, any additional transfer requests for designated site programs shall not be considered for a waiver and the student shall be ineligible for 365 days from the date of the transfer.
· Students who enter the ninth grade through residence or acceptance into a designated site program will establish Virginia High School League (VHSL) eligibility at the school.
· Once a student establishes eligibility at a high school and the student transfers to another high school for any reason, the student shall be ineligible for 365 days unless there is a corresponding change of address in accordance with the VHSL

2013.14 CONCUSSION PRESENTATIONS
All high schools and middle schools are required to provide Concussion Presentations for parents and students according to PWCS Policy 759. As there are sufficient differences in the way concussions will be handled at the middle school and high school levels, a parent having children in both middle and high schools are required to attend both a middle and a high school presentation.
Please check here for middle school and/or high school presentation times. Check individual school websites or call your child's school for updated sessions and times.
