Policy 6700 – Extracurricular Activities and Programs

Extracurricular activities are recognized as an integral part of the educational program. The District will sponsor such activities which are beneficial to a student’s development.

The School Board encourages the full participation of elementary, middle and high school students in extracurricular and recreational programs and activities offered in the District. For purposes of Board policy, “full participation” means fair and equal participation to the extent that the budget, facilities or type of activity allows.

Persons attending any school activity shall conform to the rules and regulations of the school. Persons who refuse to honor these rules can be ejected from the building without monetary admission refunds, may be denied the privilege to attend future events and will be subject to other disciplinary measures as established by District policy.

The District shall not discriminate in admission to any program or activity, standards and rules of behavior, disciplinary actions or facilities usage on the basis of sex, race, religion, color, national origin, ancestry, creed, pregnancy, marital or parental status, sexual orientation or physical, mental, emotional or learning disability or handicap. This policy does not, however, prohibit the District from placing a student in a program or activity based on objective standards or individual performance. Discrimination complaints shall be processed in accordance with established procedures.

New program requests or requests for additional levels of competition in an existing program shall be submitted in writing to the coordinator of athletics, physical education, health, and recreation by October 1 for new programs to be considered for the following school year. The coordinator will forward the request to a district team comprised of: the superintendent of schools or designee; the building principal; and the coordinator of athletics, physical education, health, and recreation. The team will review the request utilizing the following criteria: financial impact of proposal, availability of facilities, student interest, qualified coaching candidates, Title IX, impact on existing district-approved programs, and the availability of competition in the reasonable geographic area. Where such programs or additional levels of competition have current or future budgetary implications, written approval of the superintendent of schools or the board of education will be required.
