In order for a pupil to participate in extra-curricular activities, the pupil shall achieve a grade point average of 2.0 with no more than one "F" and show maintenance of minimal progress towards meeting the high school graduation requirements prescribed by the governing board in each grading period preceding the quarter of participation in the extra-curricular activities.
Initial high school eligibility will be based upon the 8th grade, second semester grades.
Note: Attendance, substance abuse, behavior, and classroom citizenship eligibility consequences shall not carry over from junior high to high school.
The eligibility grading periods shall be the first quarter, first semester, third quarter and second semester.
The grading periods shall be considered consecutive and uninterrupted. Therefore, the second semester grade of the previous year shall be the basis for determining the first quarter eligibility for the following year.
9-12 Summer School Grades--Effect on Eligibility
Summer school grades shall be included to determine eligibility.
In calculating eligibility, a summer school grade will replace the grade of a "like" course taken previously.
Grades/units earned in summer school classes which do not replace grades earned previously in "like" courses will be averaged with grades from the previous grading period (semester in grades 9-12).
Summer school grades shall not impair a student's academic eligibility achieved in the previous grading period (semester in grades 9-12).
NOTE: THIS ACADEMIC REQUIREMENT APPLIES TO EIGHTH GRADE STUDENTS ENTERING THE NINTH GRADE.
