Academic & Activities Probation
Academic & Activities Probation Overview
All students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average in order to participate in sports at PHS. A student may apply for Academic Reinstatement once during his/her freshman year should he/she fall below a 2.0 GPA in a quarter. It is a “use it, or lose it” proposition. He/She may also apply for probation ONCE during the next three years should he/she earn a GPA below a 2.0 in any quarter. (Note: The student must have a minimum GPA of 1.5 to apply for Reinstatement).
Students have approximately 2 weeks after the beginning of each quarter to apply for Academic Reinstatement and must pick up the form from Mr. Ahonen and return it to him within the two week period.
In addition, beginning in 2009 students must be within 20 credits of graduation and not be more than two core academic classes behind their grade level.
Dates of Determination are the dates that the school uses to determine eligibility. They are dates set several days past the end of each grading period to allow for grades to be submitted and account for any errors or inaccurate information. These are the official dates the school must submit to the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) the governing body for high school athletics in California. By these dates each student/athlete must have a 2.0 GPA or have applied for Academic Reinstatement.
If you have any questions regarding this you may contact the athletic directors or your child’s counselor.
