Athletic/Co-Curricular Academic Probation and Suspension
LCWM policy requires students to make satisfactory academic progress for continued athletic and co-curricular eligibility. The procedure is for Administration/Activities Director/Counselor to check grades starting the third (2nd) week of each quarter, and offer a study session 2x each week to students who are failing a class.
The study session will be held Wednesday and Thursday from 3:10-4:00pm in the media center. Athletes and co-curricular participants who are failing will remain eligible for their activity as long as they are attending study sessions and making progress. Grades are reviewed weekly and when the student is no longer failing any class, they will not need to attend the study sessions. If a competition is on a Wednesday or Thursday, the student will be excused from attending that study session. If after 2 weeks of attending study sessions their grades have not improved, the student will have a conference, which may lead to them sitting out of all activities for the week, to focus on their academics. If a student is still failing during week 9 of the quarter, they will sit out of all activities for the week, to focus on their academics. Teachers may sign off on students who have turned in missing assignments, which would excuse them from attending the study sessions.
LCWM’s Co-curricular policy applies to all non-athletic activities, clubs, organizations, competitions and events, e.g., class officers and Homecoming attendants, for students in grades 7-12. FFA, National Honor Society, and National Jr. Honor Society, which also have their own national charters and establish their own rules of eligibility.
In order to be eligible for regular season and MSHSL tournament competition, a student must be fully enrolled as defined by the Minnesota Department of Education and a bona fide member of his/her high school in good standing. A student who is under penalty of exclusion, expulsion or suspension, whose character or conduct violates the Student Code of Responsibilities and is not in good standing, shall be ineligible for a period of time as determined by the principal.
