Pirates News · Weekly Grade Checks Start Monday!


Attention Pirate student-athletes and parents,
Starting Monday, September 9th the Athletic Director will begin the new grade check program. Please make sure you’re aware of all of the changes to the program. If you have any questions, email the AD at eivory@wcsd.k12.oh.us
ATHLETIC ELIGIBILITY
 Starting in the Fall of the 2019-20 school year, all student-athletes will be subject to biweekly grade checks. These grade checks will require that all of our student-athletes have above a 2.0 GPA. If a student-athlete has below a 2.0 GPA they must attend three mandatory study tables per week. The Athletic Department will offer study tables Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday after school from 3:15-4:00pm.

If a student-athlete has below a 2.0 GPA, the student-athlete and parents/guardians will be notified via email. The AD will meet with all student-athletes that have under a 2.0 GPA on the Monday of each grade check to inform them of their required study tables.

If at any point during the two week “grading period” the student-athlete gets their GPA above a  2.0 they are able to ask the AD to check their grades. If they have successfully raised their GPA, they will not be required to attend study tables during that two week period.

Study tables take precedent over all practices. Our coaches are aware that they will have student-athletes miss practices – and potentially games – if academics are not taken seriously.
