DISABILITY EXCEPTION.  THE COMMISSIONER SHALL PROMULGATE REGULATIONS  TO
ALLOW  A  WAIVER  OF  THE FOUR-YEAR LIMITATION ON ELIGIBILITY FOR SENIOR

SELECTED FOR SUCH COMPETITION IN THE PAST, HAS NOT  YET  GRADUATED  HIGH
SCHOOL. THE COMMISSIONER SHALL DEFINE DEVELOPMENTAL OR PHYSICAL DISABIL-
ITY  FOR  PURPOSES  OF  THIS  WAIVER  IN ACCORDANCE WITH PART 200 OF THE
COMMISSIONER'S REGULATIONS.  SUCH  WAIVER  SHALL  BE  REQUESTED  BY  THE

SUCH SCHOOL'S DISTRICT AND MAY BE  GRANTED  BY  SUCH  SCHOOL  DISTRICT'S
SECTION  OF  THE NEW YORK STATE PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION.
SUCH WAIVER SHALL ONLY ALLOW PARTICIPATION ON AN UNOFFICIAL, NON-SCORING
BASIS IN A NON-CONTACT OR NON-COLLISION  SPORT,  PROVIDED  THAT  ANOTHER
