Extracurricular Activities                                                                                1700

The Meriden Board of Education is committed to providing a stimulating educational experience and fostering the passions, health, and curiosities of students enrolled in Meriden Public Schools.  The Board of Education recognizes the value of athletic and other extracurricular activities and the integral role that these activities play in public school education.  It is therefore the policy of the Meriden Board of Education to permit only students currently enrolled in the Meriden Public Schools to participate in extracurricular activities, including interscholastic athletics, offered by the Board. 

The Meriden Public Schools is a member of the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference (CIAC) and, when applicable, the eligibility of students to participate in athletic programming is to be determined in accordance with CIAC criteria and regulations.  Subject to the approval of the Superintendent, the Administration at the high schools may jointly adopt additional eligibility standards for participation in extracurricular activities.
