Policies and Procedures
Most school activities require the following prior to a student being allowed to participate in an activity:
- A student must maintain a minimum of 1.8 G.P.A. each semester and pass five full-time classes.
- Parental Permission Statement. Some events and activities in which students leave campus require a permission slip which must be signed by parent(s)/guardian(s) and student and on file before participation in an activity.
When provided, students must travel both to and from events on school transportation. Participants may be released to their own parent(s) at the conclusion of the contest. If participants are to ride home with anyone other than their own parent(s), they must have their parents request permission prior to the day of the event from the Principal or Dean of Students and the director/moderator.
Sometimes travel and special scheduling needs necessitate early dismissal for participants in an activity. It is the responsibility of the participant to inform the teacher in advance, discuss the procedure for make-up work and obtain the homework assignment. Communication on the part of the participant is essential to limiting the academic disruption of early dismissals.
Procedure For Handling Concerns
Because concerns can best be handled closest to the source, the student participant or parent should first contact the activity director. This contact should not take place during or immediately after an event, but during regular school hours. In the event that the concern cannot be resolved at this level, it should be referred to the Dean of Students.
