A new academic Eligibility Policy is being employed at the Monticello high school this year. The following information can be found in the student handbook and is printed here for further communication of this policy.
GUIDELINES FOR ACTIVITIES & ATHLETICS
A. Academic Eligibility Guidance (section 3)
(3) Teachers will update student grades every week by 8:00 Friday morning. Every student with a failing grade must attend the lunch study table. For eligibility: If a student is failing, the student is ineligible unless they attend lunch study table for two calendar weeks. By attending the lunch study table, students are still eligible to perform and practice during this time. Once they are passing all of their classes, they can get signed out of lunch study table. If a student begins failing any class again at the next Friday grade check, they once again will be required to attend lunch study table for two calendar weeks. Each class is separate from the students’ other classes in regards to the start point of the two week cycle. IF the student is still failing after two weeks, then the student is ineligible for activities for one calendar week (Monday to Sunday) and must begin attending lunch study table AND after-school study table. The after-school study table will meet from 3:15 – 4:00 Monday thru Thursday with the Intervention Specialist. Students will still be allowed to practice and travel with the team but will not be eligible to compete. Students will become eligible once again the Monday after all of their grades not in the two week grace period are brought up to passing. If a student fails to attend the lunch study table, they will be ineligible for activities for the day they miss and will also be required to attend after-school study table with the Intervention Specialist. The lunch study table begins the second week of school (August 31, 2015).
