LuRae Heffner started this petition to Superintendent of CCSD superintendent@charleston.k12.sc.us and

ALLOW CCSD athletes of Competition Cheer and Cross Country (Fall Sports) to Compete out of Charleston!! Please allow our schools to travel in state for Competitions and Meets. Other sports such as football and volleyball will be allowed to do so for Playoffs and games. Not being allowed to leave Charleston, our teams will be put at a serious disadvantage to qualify for State.   Other districts in our state are allowing cheerleaders and cross country runners to travel elsewhere following the South Carolina High School League Rules. These other schools we would be competing against  will be allowed to compete 6-8 times before qualifiers. There are only 2 competitions in our region that we would be allowed to compete at without traveling leaving  us to an extreme disadvantage especially for the seniors who have lost enough already. We have been working to qualify for states for years. Cheerleaders are allowed to travel to support the football team but aren't allowed to compete for themselves.This is not fair to segregate out certain sports and say some can compete outside of our county and some can't. Please reverse decision! These kids need to be active and their mental and physical health is just as important. These student athletes are the leaders of our area. These kids have suffered enough loss please give them a fair chance.
