IQD, Extracurricular Activities

About this Policy

Policy: IQD

Last revised: March 23, 2021

Purpose

To articulate the Board of Education’s commitment to providing an array of extracurricular opportunities, including interscholastic sports, for students

To encourage student engagement in school through a variety of extracurricular activities, with and without academic eligibility requirements, including, but not limited to, interscholastic sports, student government, fine arts, academic teams, and other group activities as an essential part of a complete educational experience

To identify extracurricular activities with academic eligibility requirements

PLEASE NOTE:  For the 2021-2022 school year, Policy IQD provisions regarding academic eligibility for interscholastic athletics are as follows: 

  • Academic eligibility requirements for interscholastic athletics for students entering their first year of high school in the 2021-2022 and subsequent school years become effective as of their second year in high school.  For example, a student beginning their first year of high school in 2021-2022 will be subject to academic eligibility requirements for interscholastic athletics beginning in 2022-2023, as determined by their marking period average in the fourth quarter of the 2021-2022 school year.
  • Board Resolution No. 6-21, Extension of Eligibility Suspension, temporarily suspended part of Policy IQD to grant academic eligibility for interscholastic athletics to all secondary students for the first marking period for the 2021‒2022 school year, to make extracurricular activities, including interscholastic sports, accessible to as many students as possible.
    • This means that only for the first marking period of the 2021-2022 school year there are no academic eligibility requirements for middle and high school students playing interscholastic sports.  After the first marking period, updated Policy IQD requirements will take effect, as follows:
      • Middle school:  In order to participate in interscholastic sports during the second and subsequent marking periods of the 2021-2022 school year, middle school students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average with no more than one failing grade in the previous marking period.  For example, for the 2021-2022 school year, a middle school student’s eligibility to play interscholastic sports in the second marking period will depend on the student’s first marking period grades.
      • High School:  In order to participate in interscholastic sports during the second and subsequent marking periods of the 2021-2022 school year, students in their second and subsequent years of high school must maintain a 2.0 average with no more than one failing grade in the previous marking period.  For example, for the 2021-2022 school year, a second year high school student’s eligibility to play interscholastic sports in the second marking period will depend on the student’s first marking period grades
