Extra-curricular Eligibility

 

In order to maintain eligibility for athletic opportunities, students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 (C) or higher with no failing grades. A cumulative grade point average for the current term below 2.0 or a current failing grade (F) in any individual class results in ineligibility. The grade status is checked regularly by the administration and a student may be placed on probation at any time. Students may lose privileges to practice, play, or participate at the discretion of the administration based on evaluation of individual circumstances. Arrangements may be made for partial or full reinstatement if the student is able to recover a GPA of 2.0 or greater with no F’s in individual classes.
If the grade has not improved at the next grading period, the parents will be notified by the Athletic Director.  The student will be ineligible for extra-curricular activities. We prayerfully suggest that the student use his/her time for study.
Teachers will be made aware of these probations. If a teacher receives work or excellent test/quiz scores that enable his grade to be raised to a 74% (C) or better, the secondary office and the athletic department would be notified and they would, in turn, notify the student and their family that the probation has been suspended.
Please be aware that if a student would fall into a C- grade at any time during the remainder of the school year after that probationary phone call, they would be put on extracurricular ineligibility until a teacher notifies us of improvement (74% C) or until the next grading period.
Also be aware that at any time a student is missing an assignment(s) a teacher may ask the coach to suspend the player until all assignments are turned in.
