For any secondary student to be eligible to participate in Florida interscholastic music activities such as FSMA sanctioned Music Performance Assessments (MPAs) they must be enrolled/registered at a public school, private school, public charter school, home education music cooperative, or virtual school that is a member of FSMA. In addition, the student must be a regularly participating member in the appropriate middle school or high school performing ensemble (band, chorus, orchestra, or guitar ensemble) from that FSMA member school.
A home-education student must either be a regularly participating member in an ensemble listed above or enrolled/registered at a home education music cooperative. In addition, the student must be a regular participating member of an ensemble equivalent to the above in the music cooperative.
