Academic/Good Conduct Eligibility

Local Eligibility for Student Activities: CBCSD School Board Policy 612

Iowa Code 36.15 (1) states that local school boards may impose additional eligibility requirements not in conflict with state rules.  Board Policy 612 establishes the standards by which students in grades 7-12 shall conduct themselves if they choose to take advantage of the privileges afforded them by participating in activities as defined in this policy. Students participating in activities will conduct themselves appropriately at all times both on school grounds and away from school. The responsibility of good conduct is an extension of the responsibility to represent the school and community in an appropriate manner. A school administrator or sponsor may declare a student in grades 7-12 ineligible to participate in an activity when the conduct of that student has been determined to be in violation of the established rules set by policy 612 and/or the specific activity in which the student is participating. See Policy 612 in the Code of Conduct or the earlier link for more detail.

Here is a summary of eligibility checks throughout a semester:

Grades are monitored throughout the semester for students in athletics and activities.  Teachers must make sure gradebooks are up to date and assessments are graded at these critical times.  All grades will be pulled from PowerSchool.

  • 4 week check, The AD will supply a “F” list to the coach/sponsor.  The coach/sponsor will make a contact with athlete and a parent about the failing class(es).  No official consequence at this time, however coaches can implement their own consequences if they wish. (ie study halls, extra help, miss game time)
  • Mid-semester (9 week) check–SAME AS PAST YEARS, The school board policy will be followed where students have a week to gain passing status.  The AD will provide “F list” to coaches/sponsors, coaches will meet with athlete and explain they have a week to get grades to passing, or become ineligible to compete after the 5 day grace period.
  • 13 week check–The AD will supply a “F” list to the coach/sponsor.  The coach/sponsor will make a contact with athlete and a parent about the failing class(es).  No official consequence at this time, however coaches can implement their own consequences if they wish.
