Playing “up a grade” in any event

Q. If I have four 2nd graders interested in an event, and zero 3rd graders, can two of the 2nd graders compete as 3rd graders? Or does one student on the team need to be in 3rd grade?

A. You don’t need a third grader on the team.  No accommodations will be made for the team (i.e., help with reading and/or content level) competing at a higher grade level.  This is one of the examples of why we are trying this rule our this year – to allow more students to compete, if they are able to do so (i.e., reasonably perform at the higher grade level).
