- Academic Eligibility – Beginning of Fall Sports Season
- A student who has failed two (2) or more subjects during the immediate previous school year will be ineligible for games and scrimmages for fifteen (15) student days.
- Weekly Academic Assurances
- On Friday of every week, teachers are to submit to the Athletic Director the names of any student who is failing their class. The Athletic Director will compile a list of all students who are failing two or more classes. These students will be ineligible for games and interscholastic scrimmages for seven (7) days.
- Nine Weeks Grades
- Each time report cards are issued, students playing interscholastic sports that have two or more failures in classes are ineligible for games and scrimmages for fifteen (15) days.
- Any student who accumulates twenty (20) or more days of absence will not be permitted to participate in athletics for (45) days. A physician’s evaluation must indicate the student’s health status before re-admittance to the athletic program. Note: On each case of ineligibility (weekly – 7 days; grading period – 20 days), the twenty-day ineligibility will take precedence.
- Additional Eligibility Requirements
- Individual coaches and/or sponsors may require more stringent academic and attendance regulations. Such additional regulations must be approved by the administration and appropriate prior notification must be given to students.
- At the end of the school year, the student’s final credits in his/her subjects rather than his/her credits for the last grading period shall be used to determine his/her eligibility for the next grading period. A pupil who does not meet the standards, but attends summer school and corrects his/her deficiencies shall be eligible. *Abridged from PIAA and WPIAL regulations, adopted 1986. Allegheny Valley School District Policy 123.
Every student participating in interscholastic athletics will receive the proper equipment, which is provided for his/her health and the prevention of injuries. The equipment is to be returned at the end of each season. If, for any reason, an athlete fails to return his/her equipment, he/she will be held financially responsible.
If a Springdale High School student is observed wearing athletic equipment other than that which has been entrusted to him/her for a particular sport, the equipment will be confiscated and the student may be suspended from athletic participation.
