It is important to understand that the information listed below reflects the minimum requirements for eligibility to participate in ANY extracurricular program. In addition, any types of disciplinary consequences from school administration can result in the student becoming immediately ineligible for participation in athletics and extracurricular activities according to our progressive disciplinary procedures.
- Eligibility Requirements (Sophomores-Seniors): Students must pass four classes and earn a grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or above per grading period or immediate ineligibility will occur. If two U’s are earned in citizenship, immediate ineligibility will occur. If four classes are passed but the overall GPA falls below a 2.0, probation* will occur for the duration of the season**. If ten weeks of probation occur the GPA must be raised in order to qualify for eligibility for CIF playoffs. The student has until the next progress report to reestablish eligibility.
- *Probation may be used once per school year
- **References to season are defined as sports seasons, fall, winter, spring - each having ten week duration.
- Once a student is on probation, the academic coach will monitor student’s progress weekly. Parents will conference with administration and athletic director, and the student will receive academic tutoring. If a student does not reach 2.0 GPA and/or has 2 U’s in citizenship during his/her grade progress check (on a weekly basis) by the 7th week, the student will not be able to participate in athletic/extra-curricular activities and games. If by the 10th week, the student does not reach above 2.0 GPA and/or has 2 U’s, the student will be ineligible for the duration of the grading period and therefore will not be allowed to participate in any sport. The Administration and Athletic Director will work collaboratively with the Academic Coach to ensure that students will remain eligible for activities and athletics through close monitoring of their grades and timely communication with parents.
Eligibility Requirements (Freshman): All freshman will automatically be placed on probation for the first five weeks of their first sport at John Muir HS. At the end of that 5-week period, any freshman student-athlete that has not achieved a 2.0 GPA or has more than 2 Unsatisfactory marks for Citizenship will only be allowed to practice, but not play in games for the next 5 weeks. If the student-athlete has achieved a 2.0 GPA and/or improved his/her Citizenship by the end of that 5-week period, he/she may resume play. If not, the student-athlete will not be allowed to finish the season with the team. Moreover, participation in any other sport for the remainder of the freshman year will require a 2.0 GPA and Satisfactory Citizenship at the start of and for the duration of that sport's seaso
