ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY


Students must maintain progress toward graduation (46 credits) at the following credit benchmarks at the conclusion of each semester of their high school career:

9th grade first semester — 5 credits earned
9th grade second semester — 11 credits earned
10th grade first semester — 17 credits earned
10th grade second semester — 23 credits earned 
11th grade first semester — 27 credits earned 
11th grade second semester — 32 credits earned 

12th grade first semester — 39 credits earned 

 

A student who does not meet these minimum requirements may be allowed to continue to participate by fully participating in the “Athletic Academic Support” program.  

 

The “Athletic Academic Support” program consists of:

 1 – A pre-meeting between the student, their parent/ guardians, coach, Athletic Director, and counselor.  

2 – Development and agreement on a individualized academic support plan. This may include scheduled check-ins, daily progress forms, structured before/after school support.

3 – If a student is deemed to not be making sufficient progress towards graduation, they will not be eligible to participate.

 

Special Education students may be exempt from this policy. The case manager will make a recommendation to the Athletic Director regarding the student’s involvement in athletics/activities.

Students who feel there are extenuating circumstances that affect their eligibility may request a hearing with a appeals board consisting of the Principal (or designee), Athletic Director and the involved student -athletes' guidance counselor.
