1700-SHIGH SCHOOLS EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES ACADEMIC STANDARDS
High Schools Extracurricular Activities Academic Standards 1700-Standards
All students participating in designated clubs, activities, or athletics which represent Maloney or Platt High School and meet regularly are required to carry a minimum of six (6) credits per year, unless a waiver from the principal is obtained. Students that are not passing five courses or have more than one F at the end of the three-week reporting window will be placed on academic warning. Students on academic warning will have one week to show progress in improving their grades. If progress is not shown after one week, students will be placed on probation.
The definition of probation status is that the student may participate in practices or meetings, but cannot compete in any performance or contest. The student on academic warning or probation will be required to attend after-school support sessions. If the student is placed on probation, he/she will remain on probation until the next reporting period. If, at any point during the probationary period, a student can provide a PowerSchool printout to the administration office or the athletic office confirming that he/she is passing five classes or has less than two Fs, he/she will be reinstated immediately.
If a student is placed on academic warning for a second time during a season or activity, he/she will automatically be placed on probation until he/she meets the requirements of passing five classes or has less than two Fs.
Students who are placed on probation, but believe that they have extenuating circumstances, may petition their grade level administrator. Final decisions on student eligibility are made by the school principal or his/her designee. If a wavier is granted by the grade level administrator, this information should also be sent to the Superintendent.
Designated athletic teams, clubs, and ensembles include, but are not limited to:
- All interscholastic athletics including Cheerleading
- Drama (during the fall and spring show seasons)
- Winter Guard (during their respective competitive seasons)
- Other clubs that meet on a regular basis
