Section 1:  General Regulations (applies to grades 7 - 12)

              Article 1:  Students, who must attend a semester to regain scholastic eligibility, may not participate in interschool activities until after they have attended class in a new semester.

            Article 2:  Schools that issue credit in subjects on an annual rather than a semester basis, shall consider the grade issued at the end of the first half of the school year the equivalent of a first semester grade, and a grade issued at the end of the school year the equivalent of a second semester grade.  Each half-year must consist of at least eighteen weeks.

              Article 3:  A student in grades 7 - 12 shall meet the following requirements for eligibility in interschool activities:

a.      Scholarship--The student shall have passed at least five new subjects (those not previously passed) of unit weight, or its equivalency, the previous semester or the last semester of attendance.

b.      Enrollment--The student shall be enrolled in and attending a minimum of five new subjects (those not previously passed), of unit weight, or its equivalency, during the present semester.

         NOTE:  High school students dually enrolled in colleges, who have their college hours recorded on their high school transcript, may count five hours of college credit as two subjects of unit weight or three hours of college credit as one subject of unit weight.  However, the student must attend at least one class of unit weight at the member, base school per semester.

              Article 4:  If a student drops out of school four weeks or less before the close of the semester and has completed a sufficient amount of work to give him or her a semester’s credit without relying upon the work that is incomplete, the student may be certified as eligible the following semester, as far as grades are concerned.


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.  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
