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:

  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:

  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.
