Just a friendly observation:
If your boy is really a baller, why jeopardize his future over pride? If it would shut up the old school, let the bastards in so this can be put to bed for the good of the kid. Let him get back to the field where he belongs.
Sounds like your new coach doesn't have much stroke or this would never have happened. Whatever happened that caused you to jump districts must have been nasty, but I'm sure you did it for the good of your son. Don't half-a&% it, man, follow thru. Protecting your kids' futures is your most important task as a parent. Everything else, and I mean everything, is secondary.
When he's playing D1 football and pro scouts are all over him, this will be but a small bump in the road.

You actually gave the guy a sincere answer, unlike the idiots who were telling them to wave a gun at the school district. You must have a good heart, and the others just hoping to hear that OP ended up losing custody of their child or something like that.

You know what my parents would have done?
Greeted them with a smile. Let them in. Gave them a tour of the house. Offered them something to drink. Talked to them politley. Then had them go on their way.
Because they aren't douche bags.
They have nothing to hide.
They would know it's just an insignificant school official.
And they would know that having their child go to school is way more important then 5 minutes without privacy.
and they understand that sometimes in life you have to sacrifice 5 minutes of privacy. Get over it.
I bet if you had a plumber come fix your bathroom toilet, you would scream about privacy and not let him in..... And if you would let him in, then I guess your toilet is more important than your childs education.
People these days.....

Remove sports from schools? Say thats a pretty good idea, until you actually sit and think about it.
How many children have gotten opportunities they otherwise wouldn't have because of extra curricular activities? College scholarships, professional contracts, etc.
How many kids have been kept away from gangs and violence because they're involved with a sports team?
How many kids have been kept off drugs due to schools drug testing their athletes?
I'm very sorry that you feel the way you do, because it's a sad state of mind. Sports and other activities provide physical fitness, opportunities and a release for some kids who cannot find it elsewhere.

You have the right to be secure from unlawful searches of your property without a warrant.
The school on the other hand has the right to deny your child admission if they feel you are illegally using a piece of property, where the child does not reside full time, to get them into a better school district.
So the real question is…
How important is it that your child continues on at his current school?

SFUSD kicks out 80 kids due to address fraud
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A crackdown is coming targeting parents who lie to get their kids into desirable schools. It's called address fraud and educators in San Francisco are going after parents who do it. There are dozens of families who live in other cities, as far away as Oakland and Daly City, claiming to be San Franciscans.
Some of the parents who got caught cried, told sob stories, and even offered money, but officials are standing strong and will kick all 80 kids out of San Francisco schools. ABCnews
