Participation in student activities is a privilege. Student activities provide the benefits of promoting additional interests and ability in the students during their school years and for their lifetime.
Students will have an opportunity to participate in a school activity unless the activity is not offered or the student cannot participate for disciplinary reasons. If the activity is an intramural or interscholastic athletic activity, students of the opposite sex will have a comparable opportunity for participation. Comparable opportunity does not guarantee boys and girls will be allowed to play on each other’s teams according to state athletic association guidelines.
Student activity events must be approved by the administration unless it involves unusual travel and expense or an overnight stay in which case the Board will take action. The events should cause minimal disruption to the education program or other District operations.
A high school student who participates in school sponsored athletics may participate in a non‐ school sponsored sport during the same season. Such outside participation will not conflict with the school sponsored athletic activity.
It is the responsibility of the superintendent to develop administrative regulations for each school activity. These regulations will include, but not be limited to, when physical examinations will be required, how and when parents will be informed about the risk of the activity, and academic requirements on the student participating in certain activities. Students wanting to participate in school activities must meet the requirements set out by the District for participation in the activity.
