Important Information for Parents & Students
The Bexley City School District encourages families to understand the guidelines that must be met before an athlete participates in a game or contest in any sport.
Each student athlete wishing to participate should become familiar with the rules of the Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) that regulate and administer interscholastic athletic competitions in the state of Ohio. OHSAA represents its member schools by recognizing and promoting academics, the safety of participants, good citizenship and lifelong values as the foundation of interscholastic athletics.
Mandatory Meetings for Athletes
Bexley City Schools requires that every student participating in athletics attend an informational meeting at least once each school year. These meetings are held three times during the school year. No athlete may participate in a game or a contest in any sport until he/she has attended one of these meetings.
The Bexley City School District requires that all athletes be covered by insurance and that parent/guardians acknowledge such coverage. The district does not provide this insurance. Those in need of affordable coverage in place of or as a supplement to family health insurance may enroll through a program with one of these:
N. Carol Insurance Agency or
Guarantee Trust Life Insurance Company. Information about filing a grievance because of denial of coverage is
Ability to Pay
Any student may apply for a district fee waiver. Students who qualify for a fee waiver are entitled to a Lion’s Pride Pass, as are their parent/guardians. All information about fee waivers is private and confidential. In addition, whenever there is team or club fee, field trip or other occasion that involves an additional cost, the teacher/coach/adviser/parent support group must plan to accommodate any student who wishes to participate but cannot pay the extra fee.
If for any reason payment or providing goods is an issue, please contact Athletic Director, Eli Goldberger. The Bexley City School District is committed to full participation by all students, regardless of their ability to pay.
