Academic Eligibility

Any student involved in the Glenwood Community High School activity program must meet the following academic requirements in order to be eligible for participation in extracurricular activities:

  1. The participant must be a full-time student, carrying at least four solid subjects (worth 1 credit) each semester.
  2. Each participant shall be passing all coursework for which credit is given and shall be making adequate progress toward graduation requirements at the end of each semester.

  3. If at the end of any semester a student is given a failing grade in any course for which credit is awarded, he or she is ineligible to compete in the next occurring interscholastic athletic contests and competitions for 30 consecutive calendar days. If not passing all classes after 30 calendar days in which a credit is given, they will remain ineligible for another week or as many as needed until passing all. Each Friday after the initial 30 days, the A.D. or designee will check with students to see where they are academically. When passing all grades, he/she will not be reviewed again until the next grading period. The ineligibility period applies to all extracurricular and non-athletic activities including state music and speech contests.
  4. When an incomplete turns into a failing grade, the student will be ineligible for the next 30 consecutive calendar days.
  5. A student with a disability who has an individualized education program shall not be denied eligibility on the basis of scholarship if the student is making adequate progress, as determined by school officials, towards the goals and objectives on the student's individualized education program.
  6. The local superintendent of schools, with the approval of the local Board of Education, may give permission to a dropout student to participate in athletics upon return to school if the student is otherwise eligible under these rules.
  7. Students who were academically ineligible at the end of the school year shall remain ineligible for the first 30 calendar days of their next sport:
