Who We Are, Is Why We Win!
All middle school students are eligible to participate in interscholastic athletics, to include those who have modified grading/assignments. To wit: if a student is working below grade level because of a disability for which he or she has an IEP, the grade he or she receive for his or her academic performance at the level for his or her modified grading/assignments will be given the same validity for athletic eligibility as a student in the same grade who receives a grade for doing on-grade level work.
The standard for athletic eligibility is a “C” average with no grades lower than a “D” in any class. In determining a student’s average, grades will be weighted by the number of minutes a class meets each week. As such, core classes (Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies), which meet for 450 minutes per week, would be considered a full credit course. Electives/Specials would be weighted accordingly in that a Special that meets twice a week for a total of 90 minutes would represent 0.2 credits.
