The Committee believes that benefits of team effort and competition are made possible by participation in inter-school sports.
Participation in interscholastic athletics will be subject to approval by the Committee and in accordance with regulations and recommendations of the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association.
At the high school level, interscholastic athletic competition will include a variety of sports and sports offerings will adhere to state and federal regulations, including but not limited to Title IX.
The Committee is aware that team participation in athletic contests by members of the student body requires that some of those contests be held at a non-Melrose venue. It also recognizes that there is a need to regulate certain aspects of student participation in such contests. Therefore, the Superintendent will establish regulations to ensure the safety and well-being of students and staff members who participate in these activities.
