Mid Term Academic Eligibility Policy

MID TERM ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY POLICY FOR Fall and Winter 2016 ATHLETES

Coaches – Please inform your current and potential players that the end of the grading period is October 14 and at the end of the day on October 19th at 4:00 p.m. there will be a “snapshot” of grades for all students.  It is this “snapshot” that will determine athletic eligibility for remainder of the semester. Students must be passing 5 credits to be eligible.  It must also be noted that an incomplete is treated as an F.

Q & A – If the grading period ends on October 14th, why is the snap shot taken on October 19th at 4:00 p.m.?  The snapshot is taken on the 19th to allow students (5 days) who may have missing work or previous outstanding work to be completed.

Q & A If the student shows me a PowerSchool grade that differs from the information given, what should I do? Ask the student if the printout was done on the 19th and if there are still discrepancies, see Ms. Tanzler or Mr. Updegrove.

Q & A What if a student is passing 5 credits on October 20th due to some updates in PowerSchool at 6:00 p.m. on October 19th?  The student athlete will remain ineligible.
