With the deadline for submission of the first phase of the athletic reporting requirement under Act 82 of 2012 having passed, please remember that school entities are also required to provide public access to the information as well as provide notice to students, staff and parents. Act 82 requires school entities to make the completed athletic disclosure form available for public inspection during regular business hours, including on any publically accessible website. The deadline for this requirement was November 1.
Additionally, Act 82 requires school entities to provide notice of the availability of the completed disclosure form to students, educational personnel, student athletes, and parents. This notice must be provided as soon as the form is completed and can be accomplished by posting a notice on school bulletin boards, in the school newspaper, on any electronic mailing list or list serve, or by any other means reasonably likely to provide such notice.
