Dexter Mosely Act (Grades 6-12)
Under the Dexter Mosely Act (Senate Bill 42), home study students in grades six through twelve are eligible to participate in extracurricular and interscholastic activities in Forsyth County Schools. In order to participate, home study students shall complete at least one qualifying course during any semester the student participates in an extracurricular or interscholastic activity. A “qualifying course” means an on-site course, an online course facilitated by FCS or a dual enrollment course. Participation is only available at the public school in which a home study student would be enrolled based on his or her residence. Additionally, according to the Dexter Mosely Act (SB42), a student who withdraws from a public school to participate in a homestudy program shall be ineligible for participation in any extracurricular or interscholastic activity for 12 months from the date of the declaration of intent to utilize a home study program provided to the Department of Education.
To enroll a home study student for this option, please complete the FCS registration process located at this link. Once the FCS registration process is completed, the home school family will be directed to provide the home school transcript, the home school declaration form, and request a qualifying course with the base school counselor through the FCS Dexter Mosely online platform.
