A student must maintain an average of 60 in each class in order to participate in extracurricular activities.
Students who are absent from school on a given day will not be allowed to represent the school in any capacity that afternoon or night, unless the absence is considered justifiable. This may also apply to participating on Saturday when a student is absent on Friday.
Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege. Students have no constitutional rights to participate in extracurricular activities.
All students are eligible at the start of the fall season. However, any student who fails a 4th quarter course of the preceding year must be passing all courses at the time progress reports are issued.
A progress report in any course indicating a failing grade results in the athlete being ineligible for a minimum of two games.
A student, who fails a course in the first quarter, must raise that grade to passing as of the date of the first contest. Failure to do so will result in the athlete being ineligible for a minimum of two contests. If the student who fails the first quarter subsequently receives a failing grade in any subject during the second quarter, he/she will then be ineligible for the remainder of the season.
A student who fails a subject for the first time during the second quarter is ineligible for a minimum of two contests.
Any student who fails a subject in the third quarter is ineligible for a minimum of two contests.
If a student drops a class, prior to the end of a quarter, eligibility will be determined by the students average at that time of that marking period.
An athlete cannot drop a class to retain eligibility.
