Chino Valley Review

The Chino Valley Unified School District Board voted 4-1 for the Chino Valley High athletic director's request not to allow online charter school students to participate in sports at CVHS. School Board Member Sherry Brown voted against it.

Brown said she believes it's the board's "charge to do what's best for all children in our community, and with this, it seems we're not following that directive."

CVHS Athletic Director Peter Jelovic asked the board for the policy change for several reasons, including loss of money because the district gets no state funds for that student, and sports cost money. Also Jelovic said it builds leadership on campus and therefore participation in the classroom and school activities will build these relationships. He called athletics "an extension of our curriculum and culture" at the school.

School Board Member Jo Kelleher said families have their choice of schools for their child to attend.

"Our charge is not necessarily to do what's best for all school children who happen to live in Chino Valley," Kelleher "Our direct responsibility is children enrolled in Chino Valley Unified School District for their education."

School Board Member Penny Hubble said the district could market CVUSD to online charter students who then might want to enroll. Kelleher added that the district could increase enrollment through marketing Chino sports so those students will want to play here.

Jelovic said no specific online charter school student currently is asking to play in a sport at the high school, however he wants to have the policy in place for any future requests. He said after the meeting that in the past four years, one online student asked to play but wasn't allowed.

Assistant School Superintendent Cindy Daniels clarified that school tax dollars for an online charter school student from Chino Valley go to the company providing the service, and not to this school district.

"The (online) company could be in Maryland," Daniels said.

As far as Jelovic knows, no school district in the state allows for online charter school students.
