ACADEMIC STANDARDS FOR PARTICIPATION IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOL EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES
To be eligible to participate in extracurricular activities, a senior high school student must have earned a minimum of 2.00 GPA and no “F” grades. Grades used to determine eligibility will be recorded on report cards and interim reports. Grades used to determine ineligibility will be recorded on end-of-term report cards only. A grade of “WF” will be considered a failing grade on interim and term reports.
Eligibility for fall extracurricular activities is determined by the fourth term grades from the previous year. An ineligible student may practice with but may not accompany the team or group or be excused from any class for the activity concerned. Extracurricular activities are those school-sponsored activities other than regular class activities in which the student represents the school (e.g. athletics, student clubs/organizations, class/club officers).
When a student believes a procedural error has occurred through a miscalculation, omission, or an inaccurate reporting in the awarding of a grade, an appeal may be made to the school principal. Additionally, if a student is able to become eligible, a participation appeal may be submitted on the same day teachers submit grade reports for the county.
