    Covid-19 Pandemic Temporary Provisions to BP 6145 Related to Eligibility Requirements

    Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, there are three temporary provisions related to student eligibility requirements for extracurricular and cocurricular activities.

    Provision 1

    The first temporary provision is pursuant to AB 908, which authorizes a school board to adopt a policy to extend the probationary period for eligibility to exceed one semester and to go through the fall of the 2020-2021 school year.  Currently, the District extends probation to 11th grade students for one grading period if they satisfy the C.I.F. eligibility requirements (2.00 GPA and currently passing 20 units). Extending the probationary period from the spring of 2020 through the fall of 2020 as AB 908 provides, would allow students who were on probation in the spring of 2020 to maintain eligibility for the December 2020 athletic season as long as they satisfy the C.I.F. eligibility requirements. 

    Provision 2

    The second temporary provision would replace the current 9th, 10th and 11th grade student eligibility requirements of:

    • 2.00 GPA or above
    • Currently passing 20 units or more, and
    • No more than one F grade.

    The above would be replaced with the C.I.F. eligibility requirement of:

    • 2.00 GPA, and
    • Currently passing 20 units or more

    Provision 3

    The third temporary provision is the expanded use of probation during the Covid-19 Pandemic. Probation during the Covid-19 Pandemic will be available to all students. The following criteria will be met and applied to any student electing to go on extra-curricular probation.

    Probation eligibility:

    • Currently passing 20 units or more
    • A written academic improvement plan for the student will be written by the student, coach or director, and school counselor.

    The academic improvement plan will be approved by the site administration and signed by the coach or director, the athletic director, school counselor, and the teacher of any class in which the student is earning an F grade.

    The student will engage in an on-site learning support pod.
