Athletic Eligibility for Students who Open Enroll Due to Harassment

Published May 2016

On April 7, Governor Branstad signed House File 2264 into law. Under the new law, a student who files an application for open enrollment would not have to sit out for the 90-day ineligibility period if the district of residence determines that the pupil was previously subject to a founded incident of harassment or bullying as defined in section 280.28 while attending school in the district of residence. This act went into effect immediately upon the signature of the governor.
