  •  In order to maintain athletic eligibility, a student shall maintain a C- or higher in all classes. Grades will be checked weekly.
  •  If a student-athlete receives any grade below a C-, regardless of the grade point average, that student-athlete is placed on academic probation for one week. The student-athlete is allowed to continue to attend and participate in practices only. He/she may not participate in athletic contests during this time. Grades will be checked again at the end of the week.

 

 


If a student continues to earn grades below a C- and/or receive discipline referrals, he/she may not be allowed to participate in athletic competition for the remainder of the season.
