Re: PIAA eligibility

Not sure why football is being discussed in the Baseball thread, but there are many schools just D6 that do not have enough players to field a JV baseball team. So the choice becomes playing some varsity players on the JV squad or not playing JV games (and therefore not developing your future varsit...

Re: State Championship Thread

Whatever you call them they aren’t a public school that is restricted like a normal public school. Restricted how?  Any student can attend any school in the state regardless of their designation (i.e. public, public charter, cyber charter, private).  You may have to pay tuition depending on the cir...

Re: State Championship Thread

Are Charters considered private or public? It’s my understanding they have no boundaries ( like private) but are publicly funded and have no tuition. Am I correct ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk All charter schools are pubic schools as are magnet schools, although magnet schools sometimes part...

Re: Thursday Scoreboard 2-28-19

Upnorth, so if a kid from Blacklick Valley wanted to attend Bishop Carroll (about 3.5 miles from BC to BV school district), they would be provided transportation from the BV School to BC, but if the same kid wanted to go to an adjacent public school, say Central Cambria, they have to provide their ...
