Beginning today, Greencastle students assigned to serve court-ordered probation will not be allowed to play sports.
On Wednesday, the school board approved the second and final reading of an amendment to the rules for extracurricular activities providing for the change.
GHS Athletic Director Scott Knapp told the board that the policy takes effect immediately. Any student who goes on probation today and hereafter will come under the new policy. Students on probation prior to today are essentially grandfathered, he said.
