    I understand why the district does not allow teachers to house students. I'm not sure I understand why a coach who has housed a player must forfeit wins...is there supposedly some unfair advantage in being in your coach's company so much?

    Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail but chanel, you are a teacher, correct? Don't all the staff know they cannot take kids home with them?

    There are rules.

    And some of them are stupid.

    Hopefully, everyone just gets warnings...especially seeing that no one was killed.

    It's pretty clear why the rule exists. But in a case like this, the District is being stupid. If the homeless student could rely on the District for help, and if the coach thought the student could rely on the District for help, then that's what would have happened. Methinks the District needs to step up and help this kid like they're supposed to by their own rules, and the coach should be applauded for keeping a kid off the streets - and given a warning for breaking the rules, of course. ;)

    And I think the warning should be stern...with a pointing finger and maybe a little spittle.

    But no fine and no loss of job or loss of wins.

    Definitely a pointing finger. Maybe even a raised voice. For shame! That should cover the bases nicely.

    Is the kid a minor? If so, red flag no matter how pure the intentions.

    Did he take in the entire family or just the kid?

    What I think is immaterial. Heck, teachers are discouraged from friending their students on facebook. Inviting one to live with you seems quite a step beyond that.
