Extra-Curricular Eligibility

Eligibility Policy Overview

It is our belief at WCHS that our extra-curricular participants set the highest example for the school as they compete and perform on the campus and in the community. We set high standards for our students and in order to be eligible to participate in our programs, a student must adhere to the following guidelines:

  1. Pass at least 4 classes.
  2. Maintain a 2.0 GPA.
  3. Receive no more than 1 “U” or 2 “N’s” in citizenship. Please note that 2 “U’s” or any combination of 3 “N’s/U’s” in citizenship will lead to ineligibility.
  4. Adhere to all other policies of WCHS and the coach/advisor of the program.

Pass 4 Classes

If a student does not pass at least 4 classes at the end of any 6 week grading period, they are ineligible for at least 6 weeks and may not apply for probation. They must pass at least 4 classes, receive a GPA of 2.0 or higher, and not receive 2 U’s or 3 N’s in citizenship at the end of the next 6 week grading period in order to become eligible.

2.0 GPA

If a student earns less than a 2.0 GPA at the end of any 6 week grading period, they may apply for academic probation (as long as they passed at least 4 classes and did not earn 2 U’s or 3 N’s in citizenship). If a student on probation does not bring up their GPA to at least a 2.0  at the end of the 6 week grading period, they will become ineligible, and will no longer be eligible for probation.
 

Citizenship

If at the end of any 6 week grading period, a student earns 2 U’s or any combination of 3 N’s/U’s in citizenship, they are ineligible and may not apply for probation. They must pass at least 4 classes, receive a GPA of 2.0 or higher, and not receive 2 U’s or 3 N’s in citizenship at the end of the next 6 week grading period in order to become eligible.

School/Program Policies

The school and program may institute additional policies involving sportsmanship, behavior, leadership, etc. that may prohibit a student from competing in an extra-curricular program; in this case, probation would not be granted.

Academic Probation

If at the end of any 6 week grading period, a student has passed at least 4 classes, has not received 2 U’s or 3 N’s in citizenship, but has earned below a 2.0 GPA; they may apply for academic probation thru the Assistant Principals office. The applicable form(s) must be filled out and signed by both student and parent/guardian. No more than 3 academic probations will be allowed during a student’s tenure at WCHS.

Once on probation, a student must bring their GPA back up to at least a 2.0 at the end of the 6 week grading period (as well as maintain all other eligibility criteria), or they will become ineligible and will remain as such until all eligibility criteria is met at the end of any 6 week grading period.

COACHES/ADVISORS HAVE THE OPTION TO NOT ACCEPT PROBATION STATUS FROM STUDENTS.

Additions to Policy

  • An incoming 9th grader must have achieved a GPA of 2.0 or higher at the end of 8th grade or they must apply for academic  probation to play in a sport.
  • Ineligible students may not travel with groups or teams to events regardless of costs they may have paid prior to the event. It is the athlete or performer's responsibility to remain eligible if they want to compete, perform or travel.
  • If a grade is performance based, an alternate assignment or performance must be scheduled during class time. No exceptions.
  • A student must have received a GPA of 2.0 or higher in the grading period previous to the probation period to be able to apply for academic probation.
