Attendance and Eligibility Policy for Co-Curricular and Extra Curricular Students
FULL SCHOOL DAY: Students are required to attend ALL classes in which they are enrolled (except those classes which must be missed because of travel time to a contest, game, or performance) in order to participate in an event that afternoon or evening. Medical and dental appointments shall be made on days OTHER than “participation” days. If a student must be absent for an appointment, proper school procedures must be followed to clear the absence (IN ADVANCE) in order to permit participation.
PROCEDURE: Parent/Guardian must notify the school administrator 24 hours in advance of an appointment. -Student must not miss more than 1 class period for the appointment. -Student must check both in and out with the attendance office. If the student does not comply with the attendance regulations and, in violation thereof, participates in an activity, that student shall be denied participation in the next two regular activities and may face additional disciplinary action. The principal or his designee shall verify compliance with school attendance regulations.
ELIGIBILITY: All students in the band program are required to maintain a minimum 2.0 grade point average (GPA). Any student who falls below a 2.0 GPA will be declared ineligible and will not be allowed to participate in any performances until the following grading period, assuming the student has raised their GPA to higher than a 2.0. Any student who has a GPA lower than 2.0 for two or more grading periods (including progress reports) may be removed from any or all ensembles at Mr. Brooks’ discretion.
THERE ARE NO REFUNDS DUE TO NON-PARTICIPATION AS A RESULT OF INELIGIBILITY or choosing to drop out. Once a donation payment is made, it is non-refundable. If you drop out before school starts and if there is a balance, no further payment is required. (This includes all band, drum line or color guard trips.)
