MUSD Administrative Regulation 6145
 
For purposes of applying eligibility criteria for student participation, extracurricular and cocurricular activities shall be defined as follows: (Education Code 35160.5)

1. Extracurricular activities are not part of the regular school curriculum, are not graded, do not offer credit, do not take place during classroom time, and have all of the following characteristics:

a. The program is supervised or financed by the school district
b. Students participating in the program represent the school district
c. Students exercise some degree of freedom in the selection, planning or control of the program
d. The program includes both preparation for performance and performance before an audience or spectators

2. Cocurricular activities are programs that may be associated with the curriculum in a regular classroom

An activity is not an extracurricular or cocurricular activity if either of the following conditions applies: (Education Code 35160.5)

1. It is a teacher-graded or required program or activity for a course which satisfies the entrance requirements for admission to the California State University or the University of California (cf. 6143 - Courses of Study)

2. It is a program that has as its primary goal the improvement of academic or educational achievement of students
 
Eligibility Requirements

The grade point average (GPA) used to determine eligibility for extracurricular and cocurricular activities shall be based on grades of the last previous grading period during which the student attended class at least a majority of the time. If a student was not in attendance for all, or a majority of, the grading period due to absences excused by the school for reasons such as serious illness or injury, approved travel, or work, the GPA used to determine eligibility shall be the grading period immediately prior to the excluded grading period(s). (Education Code 35160.5) (cf. 5113 - Absences and Excuses)

When a student becomes ineligible to participate in extracurricular or cocurricular activities in the upcoming grading period, the principal or designee shall provide written notice to the student and his/her parent/guardian.

A student is fully eligible to participate in all co-curricular and extra-curricular activities if he/she has a minimum of a "C" (2.0) grade point average on a 4.0 grading scale with no more than one failing grade ("F") for classes attempted during the previous grading period and maintenance of minimum progress toward meeting high school graduation requirements.

In the event a student finds that he/she is academically ineligible to participate in co-curricular or extra-curricular activities in the first grading period of the upcoming school year, he/she may request that the total spring and summer school grades be used to determine eligibility for the first grading period of the upcoming school year. In such cases, grades earned through satisfactory completion of summer school classes will be averaged together with grades from spring semester in determining the minimum 2.0 grade point average to determine fall eligibility.

Students may also replace a fail "F" grade with a passing grade by successfully completing the same course through a summer school class. A passing grade in the same academic course taken in summer school may negate a previous semester failing "F" grade for eligibility purposes and for determining satisfactory progress toward graduation.
 

INFORMED CONSENT - AWARENESS OF SPORTS INJURY RISK WARNING AND AGREEMENT

By its very nature, competitive athletics can put students in situations in which SERIOUS, CATASTROPHIC, and perhaps FATAL accidents could occur.

Students and parents/guardian must assess the risks involved in such participation and make their choice to participate in spite of those risks. No amount of instruction, precaution or supervision will totally eliminate all risk of injury. Just as driving an automobile involves choice of risk, participation in athletics is inherently dangerous. The obligation of parents and students in making this choice to participate cannot be over-stated.

By granting permission to your son/daughter to participate in athletic competition, a parent or guardian acknowledges that playing or practicing in any sport can be a dangerous activity involving MANY RISKS OF INJURY. Both the athlete and parent must understand that the dangers and risks of playing or practicing to play include but are not limited to, death, complete or partial paralysis, brain damage, serious injury to virtually all internal organs, bones, joints, ligaments muscles, tendons and other aspects of the skeletal system and potential impairment to other aspects of the body, general health and well being.

Because of the dangers of participating in sports, we (parent and player) recognize the importance of following coaches’ instructions regarding playing techniques, training, equipment and other team rules, etc. both in competition and practice and agree to obey such instructions.

If any of the foregoing is not completely understood and you have questions, please contact your school athletic director or school administrator for further information.
