8th GRADE END OF YEAR ACTIVITIES REQUIREMENTS
In order for students to participate in the End of the Year activities, they must meet the below requirements. Our goal is to support and ensure all students participate. 8th grade students are unable to participate if they have any of the following:
APPEAL PROCESS: 8TH GRADE ACTIVITIES
Three weeks prior to the activity, forms will be available for students that are ineligible (accumulation of 3 quarters of ineligibility). The school will communicate eligibility in advance to students and parents/guardians. Students will complete the appeal form by the designated date and turn into their counselor. The form consists of their current academic, citizenship grades and a short explanation about inclusion in the activity. Students will be given a time to meet before the activity appeals committee after turning in the form on time. If an appeal form is not turned in on time, the appeal will not be considered by the appeals committee. Status of their appeal will be communicated within 48 hours of the student appearance before the appeals committee. An accepted appeal can be rescinded if academic or behavioral infractions occur after the committee hearing. The committee will approve appeals based on academic and behavioral improvement. Special consideration and support will be given to students that have educational disabilities.
