School Council Policy
Extracurricular programs shall consist of school-sponsored activities conducted during non-school hours, both on and off school campus. Examples of extracurricular programs are: athletics, academic team competitions, club activities, and community service projects.
A committee may be formed to recommend a set of standards to the Council and shall assess such standards annually. The standards shall address the mission of the school, and shall include the academic, social, emotional, and physical development of the student. Standards shall be presented to all sponsors of all extracurricular activities annually, and abiding by the standards shall be a condition of the service as an activity sponsor or coach. Included in the standards shall be academic qualifications (if any), attendance requirements (if any), supervision, method of evaluating the program and reporting the results, educational objective, and other factors considered important by the Council.
For any student to participate in extracurricular activities, the following standards must be met:
Academic and Behavior-Students must maintain a “C” average or above in the current grading period and exhibit exemplary behavior at all times to participate in any activities that compete with other schools. Grade requirements may be more restrictive for academic clubs and programs such as Beta Club and Academic team. Coaches/sponsors will monitor student levels on a regular basis during the participation period. Teachers will notify coaches/sponsors of academic or behavior concerns for participating students. Coaches or Principal may suspend a student from competition for violations of this policy. This standard does not include intramurals.
Attendance-Students must be present ½ the school day on the day of activity in order to participate. If the activity or game falls on a weekend, the student must be present at school on the Friday before in order to participate. Special situations may be handled at the discretion of the principal. Coaches/sponsors shall monitor attendance concerns for participating students.
Supervision-Coaches or sponsors must be present at the activity and remain with students until they are picked up by a parent/guardian or their designee. Extra- Curricular activities must be supervised by school employees as assigned by the principal or designee.
Admission may be charged to cover the cost of expenses. Any additional/excess funds will go to the group or organization that sponsors the event.
Extra-curricular activities will be approved by the administration.
The same standards for discipline concerning other extracurricular activities as stated in the discipline policy will apply to all events.
