If a student has failed more than two classes of the previous semester they are ineligible for the first six weeks of the next semester. Only one "F" can be made up by summer school. During the school year, student/athletes will be checked for weekly progress beginning the third week of the semester. If a student/athlete is failing any class at the time of one of the grade checks, that student will be placed on "probation" for the next week. "Probation", simply means the student is given a warning that if the grade is not brought up by the next grade check the run the risk of becoming "ineligible". If a student has two consecutive weeks of failing a class or any class they are deemed "ineligible", meaning they can not dress-out, travel or participate in any games that week. eligibilty runs from Friday to Friday.
Also, any 8th grader turning 15 before September 1st can not participate in 8th grade athletics. They must participate as a freshman or sit-out a year.
