Please read the following regarding athletic eligibility requirements for 2020-2021:
Current Athletic Eligibility Requirements
To be academically eligible to participate in athletics or co-curricular activities, a student shall have successfully passed no less than eighty percent (80%) – 4 out of 5, 5 out of 6, or 6 out of 7 classes in the previous semester, of which at least three classes must be a C- or better. If the student is ineligible based on the previous semester grades or deficiencies over multiple semesters (see below), the student will be ineligible for participation until deficiencies, including incompletes and failures from a previous semester are recovered.
While a student may participate with one “E” or failing semester grade, if the student fails a second class in any subsequent semester, the student will be ineligible to compete until one or more failures are recovered. A failure of a course required for graduation is recovered by successfully completing a pre-approved course (through summer school, evening credit recovery courses, or other pre-approved options) that will replace the failed course. A failure of a course not specifically required for graduation is recovered by successfully completing a pre-approved course in the same category for graduation requirements. At no time may a student who wishes to participate in a covered activity have two unrecovered “E” grades on his or her transcript.
What does the grading protocol during remote learning mean for Athletic Eligibility?
If letter grades are submitted, the expectation for eligibility remains the same (student shall have successfully passed no less than eighty percent (80%) – 4 out of 5, 5 out of 6, or 6 out of 7 classes in the previous semester, of which at least three classes must be a C- or better.).
If a student or parent requests that a letter grade be replaced with a "credit", the "credit" will be considered a qualifying credit of a "C- or better".
The "two unrecovered E's" or failing grades standard in previous semesters remains intact, with no adjustments or updates. Credit recovery (click here for details) or summer school must be completed. Summer School information will be communicated as it becomes available.
Please let me know if you have any questions or need clarification. Stay healthy and safe!
