Cyber public school and the local public school disputes...

So I home school via a cyber public school. Because we are a public school that taxes pay for we are supposed to be able to elective such as sports and music through the local school system as the tax monies for these still go to the local school not our Cyber school. Well our superintendent is down right refusing to allow this with our students. (Not just me other families as well) We have proven the laws state they are supposed to allow our student on the property and to attend electives. This afternoon the principal of the elementary school threatened to call the cops on a fourth grader to remove her from the grounds while there for swim classes during school hours. The cyber school is taking action on this and I am glad. Our tax money still goes there and we are supposed to be allowed to participate in these activities. Any other cyber school goes have these issues?

Homeschooling is not common in India and we don't have a forum or body to streamline it here (not yet). I do homeschool my kids (aged 10 and 4) but we go to private places for the electives. In your case, I certainly think that the students have the right to use the school resources if you are tied up with them for cyber public school. I would be right there fighting for the right to be on the property if the case was same as yours.
