ELGIBILITY POLICY

ELGIBILITY POLICY FOR DECATUR COMMUNITY JR/SR HIGH SCHOOL IN KSHSAA ACTIVITIES

Kansas State High School activities should be an integral part of each student’s high school career. Nevertheless, the Board of Education, the High School Administration and the Faculty regard participation in such activities as a privilege. This privilege shall be dependent upon the academic standing of each student.  The following is the guidelines for students to be eligible to participate in those activities.

Academic Probation

Students failing two (2) or more subjects on Monday at 10:30 a.m. as noted on PowerSchool will be placed on academic probation. A student placed on academic probation will be subject to a one (1) week probationary period during which the student will remain eligible to participate in KSHSAA activities.

Academic Support is suggested and encouraged during Probation.

Academic Ineligibility

Following the one (1) week probationary period, if a student continues to fail two (2) or more subjects as indicated on Power School, he/she will become academically ineligible to participate in any contest or performance involving their KSHSAA activities, but may continue to attend and participate in regular practices and meetings.  Coaches may add to eligibility requirements for their sport if it is approved by the principal, is fair, and in their established rules given out at the beginning of the year.  During Academic Ineligibility, the student may not miss any academic time to attend school activities. 

Academic Support is mandatory once a student becomes academically ineligible.  It will take precedence over attending practice.

Academic Support may consist of but not be limited to:

1. Extra help sessions with the teacher

2. After school tutoring/mentoring

3. Guidance support
