No offense, but why does almost every thread turn into a thread about Greeneville? Let’s worry about Haywood and Springfield for now, because only one will face the Green Devils. Whoever wins can have the pleasure of jousting with the Devil faithful next week. 

Because all the Devils troll every page

It has nothing to do with what I think our chances would be against Greeneville. It has to do with the truth and facts. I never said it was wrong, I said it was legal. I also said I wish we could do it. I’m not worried about Greeneville right now any way. My attention is on Haywood, the game in front of us. You do have me all wrong tho. I’m a realist, not an optimist. I’ve said all year Greeneville is the top team in 4A until somebody proves otherwise. That somebody hasn’t showed up yet......

You can do it...

Springfield is open zone. Just read Robertson Co. board policy 6.204 on attendance of non resident students. This is the same exact policy that Alcoa, Maryville and most of the public schools in TN have. You are clearly open zone. 

actually they made alot of springfield student that live in springfield go to other schools because the state step in and rezoned everything. They denied alot of parents the ability to go to shs even though they live in the middle of springfield.

I don’t doubt that at all. However the policy that I quoted is the current policy. It details how studentsnoutside if the zone can currently attend Springfield high school. Even mentions the tuition the have to pay. You guys are open zone just like Alcoa, Maryville and most of the public schools in the state.

I guess I should’ve said I wish it was easier for us to do it. It takes a wavier, which is nearly impossible to get. I’ve looked into it, not for high school students but for elementary students. I think I’d have better luck running for Congress.

Trust me on this, it is next to impossible to get a waiver from our School Board to attend school out of zone

Not the same at all.  Nearly all school systems will allow out of county students for a fee, including Metro Nashville.  The policy you quoted says students can apply to attend Robertson County schools not Springfield specifically, there are 5 high schools in the county. Students who live in Robertson county have to go where they are zoned, so not open zoned.

Blount County school policy, for example, says students can attend the school of their choosing provided administrators sign off, and they provide their own transportation. Robertson, Sumner, Davidson and most other school systems in the area do not allow this.

As was stated earlier it takes an act of God for anyone to be granted an out of zone request inside the county.  

I am happy with the state of Springfield football. Even if they only had 20 kids come out for football, you can bet they would be well coached and play hard.  But what the the open zoned schools have is definitely an advantage.

Haywood wins

Different year, different venue, some same/some different players.  I am expecting a hard played and exciting game like we had last year with Haywood. I am also hoping for the same result as last year too

 

Happy Thanksgiving to all the TomCats and their fan base

Yes you are correct the students in the district have to go where they are zoned that is the only difference. You guys can take students from out of county and even out of state according to your policy. Your students have to have an administrator sign off, they have to pay tuition and they have to provide their own transportation. Same as every other open zone school system in TN. The policies may differ slightly in certain ways but at the end of the day if you allow students in from outside the zone or district you are open zone.

The "only difference" ??? That's huge...that's why Alcoa, and Maryville can win state championships every freaking year!  They never have rebuilding years.

Can you imagine if all the best talent in Nashville could choose where they want to go play? Heck even in Robertson County we've had 3 different teams make the championship game in 3 classes in the last 10-15 years.  I guess every school is open zoned  by your definition, if you don't see a difference I can't help you.

I'm done back to the game at hand.
