Student Guidelines for Athletic Participation
Student participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege (not a right) that a student earns through proper conduct and academic achievement. A student may be denied the privilege of participating in an extracurricular activity and/or an event when the student's conduct is not consistent with District Policy; the District's Behavior Code and/or academic standards; the conduct expectations and/or academic standards of Mauldin High School; and/or the conduct expectations and/or academic standards of the particular activity. Extracurricular activities include, but are not limited to, athletic teams, academic clubs/teams, prom, graduation exercises, and attendance at any school function outside of the normal school day.
Here at MHS, it is the goal of our coaching staff to provide a highly positive experience for both our student athletes and their parents. Please read the document below to understand the expectations of the Parent/Coach relationship here at MHS.
A student, while participating, must be a full-time student as determined by guidelines set forth by the State Department of Education. A student who is repeating a course for which he has previously received credit cannot count this course as one required for eligibility. This is considered as monitoring a course.
To participate in interscholastic athletic activities, students in grades 9-12 must achieve an
overall passing average in addition to the following:
To be eligible in the first semester a student must pass a minimum of five Carnegie units applicable toward a high school diploma during the previous year. At least two units must have been passed during the second semester or summer school.
To be eligible during the second semester the student must meet one of the following conditions:
- If the student met first semester eligibility requirements then he or she must pass the equivalent of four, ½ units during the first semester.
- If the student did not meet first semester eligibility requirements then he or she must pass the equivalent of five, ½ units during the first semester. In most cases on a traditional or AB block schedule, the following example would apply:
a. If eligible first semester, must pass four subjects
b. If not eligible first semester, must pass five subjects
- Students must satisfy eligibility requirements in the semester preceding participation.
a. Credits earned in a summer school approved by the State Department of Education may apply for first semester eligibility. A maximum of two units per year may be used.
b. Students eligible for a first semester sport will be permitted to complete that sport even if it extends into the second semester. Under the current League program, this will apply to participants in basketball and wrestling in the high school and middle school programs.
- Handicapped students:
a. Students diagnosed as handicapped and being served in a non-diploma program shall be considered eligible for participation in interscholastic activities if he/she is successfully meeting the requirements of his/her Individual Education Plan.
b. Students diagnosed as handicapped and being served in a program leading to a state high school diploma must meet all eligibility requirements previously stated for participation in interscholastic activities.
- A course that is dropped after the 20th day of a semester with a failing average will be considered as a failed course when determining academic eligibility for the following semester.
- Credit courses used for eligibility purposes must be courses that are applicable as credit toward a state high school diploma. A student may also use college credit courses provided the student has met or is meeting all requirements for graduation.
- Academic deficiencies may not be made up through enrollment in adult education programs.
High School Athletic Insurance
All participants of high school athletic programs are required to purchase athletic insurance through the school. Students will not be allowed to either practice or become a member of the team without this coverage. Because this policy is mandatory it covers only injuries received during practice for or participating in a high school sport.
This required policy should not be confused with the school time/ 24-hour plan which is optional and covers all school time injuries including all athletic injuries except football. Again, the athletic insurance is mandatory while the school time/24 hour plan is optional.
Attendance Requirements to Participate
To participate in a game, you must be in attendance at school at least one/half of the day (4 entire class periods) on the day of a game.
Many have asked about Title IX in regard to the MHS athletic booster club reorganization. Please review the following documents if you have questions.
