Academic Eligibility

All student-athletes who wish to participate in an athletic activity in the Elk Grove Unified School District must meet the following requirements:

  1. Have earned a “C” average (2.0 GPA) in their overall district academic program for the grading period prior to their participation and for each succeeding grading period during participation.
  2. Meet standards of satisfactory citizenship.
  3. Have a satisfactory attendance record as defined by Board Policy.

Exceptions may be made to the above requirements by a probation committee when health, physical, mental disadvantages, or other extenuating and unusual circumstances exist. If a student-athlete is ineligible at the beginning, or becomes ineligible during a season of sport because he/she is below a 2.0 GPA, he/she remains ineligible until the Monday after grades of progress or record are published where a complete GPA is computed.

For the purpose of clarification, the following terms will be used to determine academic eligibility:

  1. Grades of Progress: data processor generated grades assigned to a student but not officially recorded on a transcript.
  2. Grades of Record: data processor generated grades assigned to a student and officially recorded on a transcript.
Continuing Eligibility
If a student has a grade of “F”, on any mid-quarter or mid-term grades of progress, the student is ineligible beginning the Monday after grades are published. That student becomes eligible as soon as he/she returns a grade clearance form to the Athletic Director, signed by the teacher, signifying that the student is earning a passing grade.
Athletic Eligibility

Every student who wants to participate in a sport must complete and have signed by a parent/guardian the following forms:

  1. Physical Form and Statement of Medical Insurance
  2. Emergency Information
  3. Parent Consent, Field Trip Permission, Physical, Injury, Risk, adherence to Codes of Conduct and Acknowledgment of Athletic Handbook
