Dexter Mosley Act

Under the Dexter Mosley Act, home study students in grades six through 12 are eligible to participate in extracurricular and interscholastic activities in the Barrow County School System (BCSS).

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 BCSS, 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.

To enroll a home study student in at least one BCSS course in order to participate in extracurricular and interscholastic activities, please complete the online "Participation Declaration Form" below. You may also download and print the form to complete it. Once you have completed the form, Dr. Al Darby, Chief Administrative Officer, will contact you with details.

Please note: Families interested in enrolling under the Dexter Mosely Act must complete the same online enrollment application as full-time BCSS students.
