Dexter Mosley Act

During the 2021 legislative session, the Georgia General Assembly passed the Dexter Mosely Act (Senate Bill 42). This legislation authorizes home study students in grades 6-12 to participate in extracurricular and interscholastic activities in the student’s resident public school system, with the requirement of certain notification and course enrollment provisions. The law is codified in O.C.G.A. § 20-2-319.6.

Please note that there are six eligibility requirements as outlined by the Georgia Department of Education (see document here). Also, you will need to contact your local school district for information regarding their specific enrollment procedures.
