2017-18 Winter Athletics Registration

Registration Deadline 01/13/2018

STUDENT ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY
The Benicia High School staff, administration and the Benicia Unified School District School Board encourages students to participate in extracurricular activities while maintaining good scholastic habits. Extracurricular activities help students learn the values of leadership, sportsmanship, cooperation, teamwork, and thus help them become better citizens. Extracurricular activities/Academic Eligibility covers the following activities: Athletics, Band, Dances, Prom, Drama Productions and senior sponsored activities. The review periods for eligibility are: 1st quarter, 1st semester, 3rd quarter and 2nd semester.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

Students participating in extracurricular activities must earn a minimum of a 2.0 GPA and cannot fail more than one class during each marking period. Students who fall below a 2.0 GPA or fail more than one class are placed on probation. Students on academic probation have one academic quarter to meet the minimum grade point requirement for continual participation in extracurricular activities. Students on probation may still participate in extracurricular activities.

INELIGIBLITY

If a student has been placed on probation and they again earn below a 2.0 GPA or fail more than one class, they will be placed on the Academic "Ineligible" list. Students on the "Ineligible" list may not participate in extracurricular activities for the rest of that quarter. If during the next marking period their GPA goes above a 2.0 and they have not failed more than one class, the student's eligibility will be re-instated. If a student does not pass at least 4 classes in a grading period, they automatically become ineligible to participate in extracurricular activities (including students with a reduced school day).

INCOMING FRESHMAN & TRANSFER STUDENT ELIGIBILITY

As of the first day of school, all incoming freshman with a GPA less than 2.0 from their previous school are placed on academic probation for one quarter and will be allowed to participate in extracurricular activities. The eligibility of any transfer student will be based on his/her most recent grade report. Transferring from one school to another may affect athletic eligibility under Sac-Joaquin, CIF and/or State CIF rules. If you have questions regarding this rule, please contact Athletic Director Craig Holden at 707-333-8588.

The California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) standard for athletic eligibility states that a student must pass 4 classes and maintain a 2.0 grade point average. Therefore, a student who fails three or more classes at the quarter or semester is ineligible to participate and has NO probationary period.

Online registration for this program is currently closed/unavailable. Please contact Benicia High Athletics for further information.
