In order for a student to engage in any extracurricular activities, he/she shall maintain a grade point average of 2.0 on a scale of 4.0, or its equivalent during the previous grading period with no more than one grade of "F." If at the end of a grading period, a student has not maintained a grade point average of 2.0 on a scale of 4.0, or has received more than one grade of "F" during that grading period, he/she shall be ineligible to engage in any extra curricular activity during the succeeding grading period until the G.P.A. is restored to a minimum of 2.0.
Eligibility to engage in extracurricular activities shall be evaluated at the end of each grading period, thus allowing students the chance to reestablish their eligibility for the succeeding grading period. A student loses his/her eligibility or has it restored the 2nd Saturday at 12:00 A.M. after the end of each grading period. Students must attend all classes in order to participate in extra-curricular events. Exceptions are made only for those students who are appropriately excused (i.e. illness, doctor or dentist appointment, funeral attendance).
Instances where an extra-curricular activity is connected with the regular school curriculum, such as band or interscholastic athletics, a student who is ineligible to engage in extra-curricular activities may (1) continue in the regular school curriculum segment connected with the activity; and (2) earn grades or credits for the class, even though ineligible to participate in the out-of-classroom activity.
For purposes of this policy, grading period means both semester and mid-semester grade periods.
As per District policy, all incoming freshman begin the school year eligible to compete in interscholastic athletics. They are subject to all extra curricular eligibility requirements beginning with the conclusion of the initial grading period of the school year.
