JEFFERSON SCHOOL DISTRICT
AFTER SCHOOL SPORTS CONTRACT
It is the philosophy of
The program is dedicated to the promotion of school pride and loyalty and emphasizes wholesome school-community relations. We maintain the attitude that sports are to be respected and thus enjoyed by all participants, coaches, referees, scorekeepers and spectators. Promoting enjoyment of the sport, win or lose, is a vital and necessary element of our program.
To encourage and support academic excellence, the Board requires students to earn a minimum 2.0 or “C” grade point average in order to participate in extra/cocurricular activities. Students with any “F” grades must also maintain minimum progress towards graduation in order to meet eligibility requirements. (BP6145a) Minimum progress means maintaining a cumulative 2.0 GPA for 6th, 7th, 8th grades or meeting IEP, 504, or ELP goals.
The grade point average used to determine eligibility shall be based on grades of the previous trimester during which the student attended class at least a majority of the time. (Ed. Code 35160.5)
Probation of one trimester or less may be authorized by the site administrator. Students granted probationary eligibility must meet the required standards by the end of the probationary period in order to remain eligible for participation. (AR 6145)
The Superintendent or designee may revoke a student’s eligibility for participation in extra/cocurricular activities when a student’s poor citizenship is serious enough to warrant loss of this privilege.
The parent/guardian will arrange transportation for his/her child to and from practices and games. If parents/guardians drive other students, besides their own to and from games and practices, they will need to have the required forms completed and on file in the school office. This must be updated annually. Coaches are not authorized to transport players to and from games.
A Personal Vehicle Use form and a Non-District Transportation Notice needs to be filled out for your child to ride in another car. In order to make sure that all students are covered under this school district policy, we are asking that you fill out all of the forms and return to the office/coach promptly. Please attach a copy of proof of insurance (need to show actual dollar limits) with your forms. If you choose NOT to fill out and turn in the forms, your child will NOT be allowed to be transported in any other car but your own. Coaches are not authorized to transport players to and from games.
All school rules that apply during school are also in affect during after school sports.
