Participation in interscholastic athletics, cheerleading, student government, student clubs, graduation ceremonies, and other extracurricular activities is not a constitutionally protected civil right.  Therefore, students who are suspended, transferred to an alternative placement, or expelled, may lose the privilege of participation in all extracurricular activities during the period of discipline and will not be afforded due process procedures to challenge the denial of participation.

Students participating in extracurricular activities shall exemplify good citizenship. District and school standards for student participation in Student Government and extracurricular activities apply.

Boys Basketball

Academics:
Students participating in Athletic activities must have a 2.0 GPA from the previous term. This standard must be maintained throughout the playing season in order to participate.
No student shall be eligible to represent his or her school if he or she has academically failed more than one subject in the preceding grading period.
Determination of academic eligibility shall be made no later than 7 calendar day following the last day of the grading period. Grade changes after that time cannot restore lost eligibility.

Citizenship Standards:
Students receiving one ‘U’ in the preceding grading period will be subject to review by the School Standards Committee. A student may be put on probation and allowed to participate if the committee feels that there have been mitigating circumstances, or that an honest effort is being made to improve.

Students receiving two or more ‘U’s in a grading period will be eliminated from extracurricular activities immediately and for the succeeding term.
At the discretion of the school principal and School Standards Committee, a student with one or more ‘U’s may participate when their credit has been restored.

An appeal concerning eligibility is to be presented in written form to an administrator stating reasons by both the student and staff member involved. District policy will be followed but will allow probationary students an opportunity for improvement. Improvement needs to be taken care of by the next grading period. The committee will base their decisions in compliance with policy and the best interest of the student.
