Children In Competitive Sports – Be A Parent First

Our weekends are full of sports. If we aren’t attending our own children’s sports we are most likely fighting the weather in one way shape or form watching our nephews. The kids were able to play baseball together this summer and their dads coached the teams. Once they moved in to the All-Star teams the whole dynamic changed. We went from family hangouts to listening to belligerent parents, sometimes coaches, and every so often we’d see a kid lose his/her cool on the field. My heart hurt for those children, so passionate about their sport. Feeling every ounce of their loss in their bones, sometimes bringing them to tears.

Newsymom.com reached out to Dover City Schools Superintendent, Carla Birney, to seek comment on this matter. She explained in a statement via email that Dover City Schools welcomes and encourages all high school graduates to participate in the Dover High School Graduation Ceremony this Friday, May 25th at 7:00 p.m. at Crater Stadium.

“At no time has a Dover City Schools employee told a parent that his or her graduating senior will not be permitted to participate at Friday’s Graduation with all of the other graduating seniors,” explained Birney.  “Our school administration and staff value each and every child in our education community and recognize the significance of graduation for our students and their families.”

Birney went on to explain that they would never deny a child an opportunity to participate in graduation due to a disability. “Rather, Dover Schools, consistent with its obligations under State and federal law, has worked with parents to ensure that any reasonable accommodations requested by the parent are made so that every graduating senior may attend and participate in Graduation,” said Birney.

Following the statement request made by Newsymom.com, Dover City Schools took the same statement to social media where it’s since been shared more than 100 times.

“Simply put, contrary to any information currently circulating on social media, the school district has not, and would not, tell any student or their family that, because of any disability, their graduating senior may not attend the High School Graduation ceremony scheduled for this Friday at 7:00 p.m.” added Birney.
