A note about home schooled students and home school associations:

Students who are currently home schooled may participate in OBOB as a member of a school team within the public school attendance boundaries of the school in which the student's parents reside (as per ORS 339.460 section B, part f). Home schooled students may not, however, form a team on their own. Home schooled students wishing to participate in OBOB should contact their local school library for OBOB related class and/or practice requirements (ORS 339.60, Sec B(e). Home schooled students may be placed on a school OBOB team at the local level following the same procedures and guidelines used for traditional students. Only schools listed in the ODE Directory of Schools (http://www.ode.state.or.us/pubs/directory/schooldirectory_20120904.pdf) are permitted to register a team for OBOB.
