Apollo-Ridge Athletic Eligibility

  • Participation in extra-curricular activities requires the student to sustain proficient level of academic performance through the school year.  Weekly grade checks will include grades during a time period of Friday through the following Thursday.  In order for a student to remain eligible, the following must be true otherwise the student will be declared ineligible:
    • He/she must be passing at least four (4) of the five (5) core subjects
    • He/she must have passed at least four (4) of the five (5) core subjects during the previous grading period.
    • If failing two (2) or more of the five (5) core subjects, eligibility is denied.
    • A student who is ineligible for more than two (2) consecutive weeks will no longer be eligible for the remainder of that season.
    • You must have passed at least four of the five core subjects during the previous grading period, except that eligibility for the first grading period is based on your final grades for the preceding school year. If you fail to meet this requirement, you will lose your eligibility for at least 15 school days of the next grading period, beginning on the first day that report cards are issued.
  • In order to participate, a student must be present for 4 periods during the school day on the date of the extra-curricular activity.  In the event a student is not present for the required 4 periods, the absence MUST be excused.  The determination of excused or unexcused absences will be at the discretion of the administration. 
  • Students declared ineligible may not participate in any related practices and may not travel with the team or group.
  • Students absent from school on Friday may not participate in weekend activities.
  • Student participation in one-time events occurring beyond the regular school day, including such events as concerts, art shows, and science fairs, which are extensions of accredited courses, will be reviewed for consideration by the administration.
  • Suspended students are not permitted to practice or participate in school activities during their period of suspension. 
  • A student may become ineligible for disciplinary reasons in school, on school grounds or at school sponsored events.
  • Regulations applying to student behavior during school hours will also apply to out-of-school activities (field trips, athletic events, etc.).
  • All athletes/participants in the extra curricular activity must review and sign the Athletics/Co-Curricular Code of Conduct.
