  • Extracurricular & Social Eligibility Code

    All participating students must sign the Extracurricular Activities Code of Responsibilities Contract

    Introduction

    The extracurricular activities are an important and integral part of the total school program.  Their purpose is to promote physical, mental, social, emotional, and moral well-being of students.   All students are provided an equal opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities consistent with the policies, rules and regulations of the Conestoga Valley School District, governing bodies of said activities, school buildings and individual clubs, groups and athletic teams.  The rules and regulations of each extracurricular activity cover areas including but not limited to academic and attendance expectations, behavior, drugs, alcohol and tobacco and specific team rules.  Participation in extracurricular activities is a privilege made available to students who agree to abide by the expectations stated in the Extracurricular Code and those developed by each respective coach or advisor.

    Questions or concerns related to extracurricular activities should be directed to the athletic director’s office (for sports related issues) and the principal’s office for all others.

    For purposes of this policy:

    • Extracurricular activities will be defined as those activities that occur before 7:40 a.m. or after 2:45 p.m. (including school-sponsored summer activities), or those unevaluated/ungraded activities that are incorporated in the school day.
    • Curricular activities will be defined as evaluated/graded content offerings scheduled between 7:40 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.
    • Students and parents must sign confirmation that they have read and understand the Extracurricular Codeprior to participation in extracurricular activities.

    The Extracurricular Eligibility Policy, in addition to all other district policies, applies to all participants in extracurricular activities.  Athletic participants are also governed by the PIAA rules.
