MHSAA DECENCY CLAUSE

MHSAA DECENCY CLAUSE

 

(Required for all Interpretation events at a Mississippi tournament)

 

Students participating in any Interpretation event at an MHSAA-school tournament in Mississippi must have in their possession in each round a copy of the exact manuscript to be used with a cover sheet that contains the clause “The decency standards reflected in this piece uphold the values and morals of the student’s school, community, and family.”  This statement must be signed by the student’s coach and at least one of his/her parents/guardians.  Failure to comply with this requirement will result in disqualification for that event.  Forged signatures will result in the student’s being placed on probation for the remainder of the semester.  A second forged incident will result in the student’s being denied entry to a tournament for the remainder of the semester. The complaint procedure will involve the copying of the script in question, the mailing of a copy of that script to the principal of the school involved, and his/her attesting to the signatures and approvals indicated on the cover sheet.
