Grades will be updated each Monday by the teachers. Grades will be reviewed each Monday by the Athletic Director for ALL 7-12 student-athletes.


1) If, on the review of grades on a Monday, a student-athlete has passing grades they will be deemed eligible for the week and be allowed to practice and play in games. A student will stay eligible until the next Monday when grades are reviewed. For example, if a student is eligible on Monday, ore earns a failing grade on Tuesday, they are still eligible to practice and play until the following Monday's grades are again reviewed.


2) If, on the review of grades on a Monday, a student-athlete has a failing grade, they will be deemed ineligible and will only be allowed to practice. The student-athlete will have until game time (contingent upon teachers time and availability) to earn passing grades and be deemed eligible by the Athletic Director.


3) If, a student-athlete is out of compliance with citizenship in the classroom

(i,e., misbehavior, disrespect, incorrigible, yellow discipline tickets, removal from class), they will be deemed ineligible and will only be allowed to practice. A behavioral improvement plan will be implemented in order for students to maintain eligibility. Students who follow the behavioral plan will be deemed eligible, those who do not follow the behavior plan will be deemed ineligible.
