Eligibility Sports Season

A full-time student earns academic eligibility to participate in extracurricular activities by maintaining a 2.0 grade-point average (GPA), calculated using credit or non-credit courses, with no more than one failing grade for the marking period, which governs eligibility for that activity. For more information, see Policy 9070 – Academic Eligibility for High School Extracurricular Activities.

The Marking Periods for Academic Eligibility are determined by the following:

  1. Fall sports eligibility –  Determined by the final marking or 4th quarter grades of the previous academic year or June's grades. 
  2. Winter sports eligibility – Determined by the grades earned in the 1st quarter. 
  3. Spring sports eligibility – Determined by the grades earned in the 2nd quarter.
