New Eligibility Requirements Announced for 2014-2015
Next fall there will be new eligibility requirements for student athletes. These new eligibility requirements will prevent loop holes and ways to get around the rules. Past rules made it too easy to allow players to play that shouldn't have.
The new requirement is just a straight up grade point average. Student athletes have to maintain at least a 1.75 GPA in order to meet the requirement. If, at the end of a quarter, the athletes GPA is under a 1.75, they will be on "probation". This allows the athlete another quarter to get their grades above the requirement. When on probation, the student is still eligible to play.
There will be a letter sent home to make sure the student and parents understand the consequences if the student doesn’t get their GPA up. If the next quarter comes around, and the athlete is still falling below a 1.75, they will go on suspension for the next quarter. This restricts the athlete from playing in any game.
Coaches made the decision to change the requirements. They have the right to make their own GPA requirement for their team as long as its above a 1.75.
This is a great way to ensure that students are putting academics before athletics. These new requirments were passed by the School Board recently. For any additional information or questions contact AD Rory Johnson at 628 - 4926 ext 1029.
