Policy No. 3510 Student Activities

Student activities supplement the school district’s academic program and provide opportunities for students to extend classroom learning, develop individual abilities, learn the value of group effort, and use time constructively.

Participation in competitive athletics, student government, and other extracurricular activities confer important educational and lifetime benefits upon students. However, there is no constitutional or legally protected right to participate in these types of extracurricular activities. Students who participate in extracurricular activities become role models for others in the school and community. These students often play major roles in establishing standards of acceptable behavior in the school and community, and establishing and maintaining the reputation of the school and the level of community confidence and support afforded to the school. Accordingly, students involved in extracurricular activities must comply with school and District policies, team and organization rules and applicable local, state, and federal laws regarding their conduct and behavior.

Student activities recommended by the principal must be authorized by the superintendent or designee, and must be supervised by an appropriately assigned advisor or coach.

The superintendent shall establish procedures relevant to participation in athletic and cocurricular activities. The minimum academic standard for participation in athletic and other co-curricular activities is a grade point average of 2.0 for the proceeding grade period, with no more than one failing grade. Students who do not maintain this academic standard will be deemed ineligible until they reach this standard.
