Parents and students, please be aware of the new eligibility
requirements. If you feel you may have a failing grade, please come
to Enrichment Friday.
Parents: If you want to check on the
status of your childrens' grades, you can setup a Parent Portal
account. If you do not have an account with the district, please
fill out the appropriate paperwork and the
Technology Coordinator will set up an account for you.
For students in grades six, seven, or eight that are participating
in any extracurricular activities, eligibility must be established
before they will be permitted to participate in any contest, game,
tournament, or event sponsored by the District.
Grades 7-12: In order to participate in SDHSAA-sanctioned
events, students must meet SDHSAA eligibility requirements.
Eligibility Procedures: The eligibility procedure will be as
A. Grades in all courses for students who are
participating in extracurricular activities will be used to
determine eligibility. Eligibility checks begin the second week of
B. Eligibility will be checked on a weekly
basis starting the second week of each quarter. Teachers are to have
grades posted no later than 8:00 a.m. on Monday morning or on the
first day of a school week that does not start on Monday. Grades
will be checked by the secondary principal, and students who are
deemed ineligible will be notified along with their activity
sponsor. If found to be ineligible, students will not be able to
participate in games or events for one week (Monday through Sunday).
Students will be able to participate in practices, but will not be
allowed to travel with teams of groups to competitions or events.
C. If a student is ineligible for three consecutive weeks for
the same class, the student will no longer be allowed to participate
in practice, and instead will spend time after school working with
the teacher(s) of the class(es) in which the student is ineligible.
D. A failing grade is defined as a grade of below 70% at the end
of each eligibility period.
E. If students receive a failing
grade in any course for the eligibility period, they will be
ineligible until the next eligibility period.
will be informed when their grade falls below 70% in a class via
weekly grade reports.
G. For the purpose of this subsection,
the first quarter shall be considered as ending on midnight on the
day before the second quarter begins, and the second quarter shall
be considered as starting on the first day classes are held in the
second quarter. The same will be true for the remaining quarters of
the school year.
NOTE: Eligibility is extended to students
whenever state-sanctioned events are held after the District’s
school year has been completed.
H. When a student transfers
from another school, the scholastic record from the former school
shall be used for determining eligibility. The student shall not
participate in any interscholastic contests until the official
transcript of grades is received from the former school and academic
eligibility is verified.
I. Students absent from school on the
day of an extracurricular activity will not be permitted to
participate in that activity unless given permission to do so by the
secondary principal prior to departure. A student must be in school
the entire day following a scheduled activity (unless it falls on a
non-scheduled school day). The secondary principal may grant an
exception to these limitations. Disciplinary action may be taken on
a case-by-case basis.
J. Students must have their work made
up in advance if the activity involves missing any part of the
school day. It is the responsibility of students to contact every
instructor for those classes they are to miss, even if their name is
on the travel list for an activity. The activity sponsor will check
the assignment list to determine if all work is made up before
students will be allowed to travel for an event. If work is not
completed, students will not be allowed to travel.
District may use 7th and 8th grade students on high school teams for
high school contests, provided the students meet scholastic
standards fully equivalent to those required for students in grades
9-12 by the SDHSAA and the District.
