DEXTER MOSLEY ACT: Home Study Student Participation in LCSS Activities
Starting with the 2021-2022 school year, the State of Georgia passed the Dexter Mosley Act, effectively creating a process for home study (homeschooling) students in grades 6-12 an opportunity to participate in extracurricular/interscholastic activities through their resident public school system.
