    I understand, I just figured the school would have an idea which students are on aid after they're in the system.

    How does one get into Manual who may have went to T.J.? Do they use a test to accept kids or look at middle school grades?

    A variety of test scores (mine: CATS, ACTs (yes, I took it in the 7th grade), a whole bunch of others... I'm a born standardized test taker, I made sure they got to see plenty of mine ) essays, grades, teacher recomendations, diversity of student population, all looked at through a prisim of which program. VA students must submit a portfolio, YPAS students must audition.

    There are others, I'm sure.

    Depends. Are they all in English, and he's applying for MST? Did he really bomb in the first half and get it together in 7th and 8th grade? Do his test scores show he has great, unrealized potential?

    I have no idea but the student is usually in grade trouble and is ruled ineligible to play every so often

    Well, it would matter. It would also depend on ALL the other elements I mentioned, like teacher recomendations and the consideration of the diversity of student population.

    To be perfectly honest, my grades have never been the greatest at any level. Homework is for the birds...

The burden of proof is on those who would make the charge. Third, there is copious evidence that the financial aid is awarded properly. The private schools have to use a service that is approved by the KHSAA. Sexton knows that. The Manual principal knows that. Every one of the miserable excuses for a human being making these proposals should know it.
    Legistation is always political, if you find that distasteful I am sorry, I am not disagreeing with you, but it is what it is. I am just calling it what it is, I am not supporting it. But to call them miserable human beings is hyperbole at best. This is high school sports, not academics. It is not life or death or going to destroy your kids.
