Athletic Academic Eligibility
To be eligible for interscholastic athletic competition, a student must pursue a curriculum defined and approved by the principal as a full-time curriculum. Where required, this curriculum or its equivalent must be approved by, and conform to, the regulations of the State Board of Education and the Pennsylvania School Code, as well as any local policies established by the local school board. The student must be passing at least four full-credit subjects, or the equivalent. Eligibility shall be cumulative from the beginning of the grading period, shall be reported on a weekly basis, and shall be filed in the principal’s office.
In cases where a student’s cumulative work from the beginning of the grading period does not, as of any Friday, meet the standards provided for in this section, they shall be ineligible from the immediately following Sunday through the Saturday immediately following the next Friday as of which their cumulative work from the beginning of the grading period meets the standards provided for in this section. Where a school is closed on a Friday for any reason, the principal may, at their election, determine whether the student, as of that day, meets the standards provided for in this section.
In order to be eligible for interscholastic athletics, a student must have passed at least four full-credit subjects or the equivalent during the previous grading period. Conestoga students who fail two or more major subjects (those subjects that meet every day) will be declared ineligible for interscholastic athletics for fifteen (15) school days.
Back work may be made up, providing it is in accordance with the regular rules of the school.
