ELIGIBILITY STANDARDS

 

  • Students have 5 calendar days from the date quarter grades are electronically posted to remedy eligibility problems. Probation or dismissal from a team or office will occur if the student is still ineligible after 5 calendar days.
  • All eligibility appeals must be made in writing to the Standards Committee and must detail any extenuating circumstances. A student may only make one appeal to the Standards Committee during junior high.
  • Probation guidelines are explained in the “Constitution” for student officers and cheerleaders.
