Extracurricular Eligibility

Eligible means that a student meets academic and behavioral guidelines to participate in an extracurricular activity. Ineligible means that a student does not meet the academic and behavioral guidelines to participate in an extracurricular activity. Eligibility is determined weekly on Thursdays for the following week.  A student found ineligible on Thursday may not participate in practices, rehearsals, or club meetings beginning on Monday of the following week.

 

A student is ineligible for participation in an extracurricular program under the following circumstances:

  1. The student has a D average in two or more subjects or and F average in one or more subjects; or
  2. The student is serving a suspension or has been expelled from school.

A student who becomes ineligible for academic reasons on Thursday has the opportunity to complete missed assignments to raise his/her grade and regain eligibility.  Such work must be submitted to the teacher by 3:00 p.m. on the following Monday for consideration.

 

School disciplinary action can affect a student’s eligibility and/or ability to attend or participate in a sport or extracurricular activity. The seriousness of the offense(s) will determine the action taken by the Principal or Dean of Students. For example, a student may not participate in an athletic event, competition, performance, or club meeting on the day he/she is assigned to serve a detention.
