Columbus City Schools postpones fall sports

Lori Schmidt

Columbus City Schools has indefinitely suspended all in-person interscholastic athletics and extracurricular activities, effective Aug. 14. 

“We all know how important athletics and extracurricular activities are to our students, as well as the fabric of our schools and the communities they serve,” said Superintendent Dr. Talisa Dixon. “But we also know the importance of protecting the health and safety of our students and those communities. We must make our decisions about the fall with that in mind.”


The District is set to start school Sept. 8 under an all-remote learning model. 

Ohio health officials have yet to lift a prohibition on games involving contact sports. According to reports, Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine is going to address school sports sometime this week.

Lt. Gov. Jon Husted has already indicated his preference is to see athletes on the field.
