Magnet School Athletics Policy & Guidelines

Middle School Athletics Policy:

A student who meets all other AHSAA eligibility requirements and is accepted to Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet is eligible to participate in sports at their zoned middle school.  A student who meets all other AHSAA eligibility requirements and is accepted to Floyd Middle Magnet is eligible to participate in sports at Floyd Middle Magnet. A student who meets all other AHSAA eligibility requirements and is accepted to Carr Academic Magnet is eligible to participate in sports at Carr Middle School.

A student at Baldwin Arts and Academics Magnet, Floyd Middle Magnet and Carr Academic Magnet may also “play up” only at one of the three magnet high schools (Loveless Academic Magnet Program (LAMP), Brew Tech or Booker T. Washington (BTW).

However, if a student chooses to “play up”, they have established their eligibility at the school for which they are playing. If the student chooses not to enroll in the school for which they are playing or if the student is not selected to that particular school through the magnet application process, the student will be ineligible to play at their zoned traditional school or another MPS magnet high school for a period of one year from the date of enrollment.

 

 

High School Athletics Policy:

A student, who is applying to either of the three magnet high schools and is currently enrolled in a traditional MPS middle school or high school or a non-MPS school that is a member of the AHSAA, is ineligible to participate in sports at the three magnet high schools for a period of one year from the date of enrollment. A student who is currently enrolled in Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet, Carr Middle Magnet or Floyd Middle Magnet is eligible to participate in sports at any of the three magnet high schools. However, any student who “played up” at one of the three magnet high schools while enrolled at either Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet, Carr Middle Magnet or Floyd Middle Magnet is only eligible to participate in sports at the school where the student established his/her high school eligibility (school that the student “played up” at). A student, who “played up” at a MPS magnet high school while enrolled at Baldwin Arts and Academic Magnet, Carr Middle Magnet or Floyd Middle Magnet and is attempting to enroll at a different school from where his/her high school eligibility is established, is ineligible for a period of one year from the date of enrollment.
