FRANKLIN, Tenn. (AP/WMOT) — The Williamson County School Board has voted against allowing home-schooled students to participate in sports on high school teams.

The Tennessean reports that board members discussed the topic for 45 minutes yesterday before voting 8-to-3 against allowing students outside of the county school system to join teams at their area high schools.

Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association spokesman Matthew Gillespie says the Association changed its rules to allow home-schooled students to participate in public school sports one full year ago.
