This exemption will be granted only after careful review of the needed information and usually only under extraordinary circumstances.

An unexcused absence from class shall result in the student being withheld from participation in athletics on the date the violation occurs. It should be noted that unexcused absences from athletic practice sessions result in partial or complete loss of playing time in the next regularly scheduled contest as determined by the coach.

·shall not consume or possess beverages containing alcohol;

·shall not use tobacco; or

·shall not use or consume, have in possession, buy, sell or give away marijuana or any substance defined by law as an illegal drug or controlled substance.

It is not a violation for a student to be in possession of a legally defined drug that is specifically prescribed for the student’s own use by a doctor or is used in a religious ceremony.

Student-athletes’ conduct in and out of school will be such as to bring no discredit to the athletes, their parents, the school or the team.

Each school shall diligently and completely investigate any issue that could affect student eligibility.

A student who commits an act for which charges may be or have been filed by law enforcement authorities under any municipal ordinance, misdemeanor or felony statute shall not be eligible until all proceedings with the legal system have been concluded and any penalty (i.e. jail time, fine, court cost, etc.) or special condition of probation (i.e. restitution, community service, counseling, etc.) has been satisfied. If law enforcement authorities determine that charges will not be filed, eligibility will be contingent upon local school policy. Minor moving traffic offenses shall not affect eligibility, unless they involve drugs, alcohol, accidents or injuries.
