Crinn: My daughter is a junior in high school and plays varsity basketball, she is learning disabled and has an IEP . Is there any protection for her to be able to play sports even though her gpa is low? She passed all her classes but her gpa is currently 1.6 with a cumulative of 2.3.The coach told her tonight that she’s ineligible as a 1.7 is required (distinct). She’s been sobbing for hours, saying “I messed up, I messed up, what am I going to do, they won’t let me play” She is a good kid with a beautiful heart, doesn’t miss school struggles to keep up, but is there every day trying. – It will crush her beyond anything I can explain if they don’t let her play. I’m dying inside, looking for a shred of hope.
