No Pass No Play

The following groups are affected by the “No Pass No Play” school policy: Athletics, Spiritline, Speech/Debate, and musical groups when in competition with or against other high schools.

Coaches and activity sponsors will provide the Athletic Office with a list of participants. This list will be updated and made available to teachers via e-mail on a weekly basis.

Teachers are to post grades weekly. It will be the responsibility of the teacher to place the student-athlete with a grade of “F” (below 60%) on the ineligibility list. This will be coordinated through the Athletic Department.

Any student placed on the “No Pass No Play” list will not be permitted to compete in any school sponsored competition until the student-athlete has rectified the failing grades. The student will be ineligible for competition until a clearance slip has been issued by the Athletic Department.

Teachers that have marked student-athletes ineligible in their class will email the Athletic Director’s Administrative Assistant by Thursday at 3:00 p.m. If the grade is not rectified by Monday at 3:30 p.m., the student-athlete is ineligible for competition for the entire week. Students may continue to practice during the period of time that they are ineligible.

The Athletic Office will notify coaches and sponsors of students who are not eligible for competition and only the Athletic Office can officially clear a student for competition. Once a student is able to play, coaches will receive a clearance slip from the Athletic Office.

Student-Athletes failing a class at the end of the semester or at the end of the school year will be ineligible until the following weekly grade check. Student-Athletes failing for three (3) consecutive weeks will be taken off the roster for the sport and will not be able to play due to ineligibility.

Participation Guidelines

Please discuss participation in multiple athletics/activities with the sponsors/coaches and the school principal, if necessary, in advance. If multiple athletic and/or activity participation exists, the following criteria will be followed:
  • State, Division, Conference, or Playoff events take precedence over regular practice or competition. Example: A student involved in State Chorus takes precedence over a basketball game.
  • Competition always supersedes practice. Example: A student basketball game takes precedence over choir practice.
  • Tryouts supersede practice. Example: A tryout for the school play supersedes basketball practice. 
  • If  two competitions are of equal status, the student makes the choice. Example: No penalty is assessed due to a student choice between a basketball game the same night as a choir contest.
