The Akron Public Schools are looking at implementing a new plan to ensure 100% compliance with the OHSAA regulations.
This proactive approach stems from a ruling during the 2014-15 school year when the OHSAA had determined the APS committed infractions as it relates to eligibility.
APS Athletic Director Joe Vassalotti joined the Sam Bourquin Show Monday to talk about the plan and how to better educate parents, student-athletes, and others about the eligibility rules.
"We want to be transparent and do things right here and follow the bylaws of the OHSAA as exactly they should be."
Vassalotti says that among other items, building athletic directors will be checking eligibility earlier, as well as making sure student-athletes grade point average is where it should be.
He says by being 100% compliant, student athletes get the concept of doing things the right way.
"We need to follow through to make sure all paperwork is turned in in a timely manner, and ultimately we want them out there competing with their teammates."
