Student activities supplement the school district's academic program and provide opportunities for students to extend classroom learning, develop individual abilities, learn the value of group effort and use time constructively.
Student activities recommended by the principal must be authorized by the superintendent or designee, and must be supervised by an appropriately assigned advisor or coach. While participation in student activities is voluntary, students who participate are responsible for maintaining acceptable school performance. Students failing to meet established district attendance, citizenship and scholastic standards may be denied the privilege of participating in certain activities.
The superintendent shall establish procedures relevant to participation in athletic and co-curricular activities and provide an annual report to the Board.
Beginning the 2015-16 school year, the minimum academic standard for participation in athletic and other co-curricular activities is a grade point average of 2.0 with no failing grades or a grade point average of 2.5 or greater with no more than one (1) failing grade at each grade check period. Students who do not maintain this academic standard at check points as defined in the procedures will be deemed ineligible until they reach the standard or gain an exception to the standard through a district appeals process.
