Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This substitute amendment prohibits a school district from being a member of
an interscholastic athletic association unless the association elects to be governed by
the state's public records and open meetings laws. An interscholastic athletic
association that elects to be governed by the public records and open meetings laws
is subject to those laws. Under the substitute amendment, an interscholastic athletic
association can be either a nonprofit, unincorporated association or a nonstock,
nonprofit corporation, if the unincorporated association or corporation coordinates
athletic events or contests for students enrolled in grades 9 to 12 in the public schools.

The substitute amendment also applies the public records law to private
schools participating in a parental choice program to the same extent as that law
applies to public schools.
